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

It’s 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.



Try out

# change the directory where to put the configuration (default: /etc)
$ export SYSCONFDIR=<sys conf dir>

# install ldapcherry
$ pip install ldapcherry

# edit configuration files
$ vi /etc/ldapcherry/ldapcherry.ini
$ vi /etc/ldapcherry/roles.yml
$ vi /etc/ldapcherry/attributes.yml

# launch ldapcherry
$ ldapcherryd -c /etc/ldapcherry/ldapcherry.ini
