LDAP-backed plugins for the Zope PluggableAuthService

Project description

Automated test results Test coverage Current version on PyPI Supported Python versions


The LDAPMultiPlugins package provides PluggableAuthService plugins that use LDAP as the backend for the services they provide. The PluggableAuthService is a Zope user folder product that can be extended in modular fashion using so-called plugins.

The plugins in this package provide a PluggableAuthService-compatible shim around a LDAPUserFolder instance. After instantiating a plugin all further configuration is done on the LDAPUserFolder object itself, which is created automatically inside the plugin. Visit the ZMI Configure tab to find it.

Special features - Active Directory Multi Plugin

Properties of the ADMultiPlugin instance:

  • groupid_attr - the LDAP attribute used for group ids.

  • grouptitle_attr - the LDAP attribute used to compose group titles.

  • group_class - the LDAP class of group objects.

  • group_recurse - boolean indicating whether to determine group memberships of a user by unrolling nested group relationships (expensive). This feature is not guaranteed to work at this moment.

Active Directory configuration hints

In order for groups support to work correctly, you may have to set the following properties. Every situation is different, but this has helped some people succeed:

  • On the “Properties” tab for the ActiveDirectoryMultiPlugin, set the groupid_attr property to “name”.

  • On the contained LDAPUserFolder’s “Configure” tab, choose a property other than “objectGUID”, e.g. “sAMAccountName” for the User ID property. To get to the LDAPUserFolder, click on the ActiveDirectoryMultiPlugin “Content” tab.

Please see README.ActiveDirectory from the LDAPUserFolder package for additional information.
