Django LDAP authentication for KDL

Project description

Django LDAP authentication

This application uses django-auth-ldap_ to authenticate against KDL's LDAP service. If the LDAP authentication fails it falls back to Django authentication, so it is possible to have local Django accounts.

#. ``pip install django-kdl-ldap``
#. add ``kdl_ldap`` to ``INSTALLED_APPS``
#. import the ``kdl_ldap`` settings into your project's settings ``from kdl_ldap.settings import * # noqa``.
#. Add the setting ``AUTH_LDAP_REQUIRE_GROUP`` to your project settings and set it to the LDAP group you want to authenticate to: ``AUTH_LDAP_REQUIRE_GROUP = 'cn=PROJECT_GROUP_NAME,' + LDAP_BASE_OU``.
#. Add ``kdl_ldap`` signal handler into your project urls:

from kdl_ldap.signal_handlers import register_signal_handlers as \

System requirements

The python/django LDAP libraries depend on the ``libldap2-dev`` and ``libsasl2-dev`` systemlibraries.
