The credentials are:

Please take note that it’s not possible to modify/delete the ‘admin’ and ‘user’ users.

Also take note that the service will be reseted once per day.


LdapCherry is a CherryPY application to manage users and groups in multiple directory services.

Its main features are:

  • manage multiple directories/databases backends in an unified way

  • roles management (as in “groups of groups”)

  • autofill forms

  • password policy

  • self modification of some selected fields by normal (non administrator) users

  • nice bootstrap interface

  • modular through pluggable authentication, password policy and backend modules

LdapCherry is not limited to ldap, it can handle virtually any user backend (ex: SQL database, htpasswd file, etc) through the proper plugin (provided that it is implemented ^^).

LdapCherry also aims to be as simple as possible to deploy: no crazy dependencies, few configuration files, extensive debug logs and full documentation.

The default backend plugins permit to manage Ldap and Active Directory.
