pas.plugins.ldap 1.1.0

LDAP Plugin for Zope2 PluggableAuthService (users and groups)

Latest Version: 1.4.0

This is a LDAP Plugin for the Zope2 Pluggable Authentication Service (PAS).

It provides users and/or groups from an LDAP Directory. It works in a plain Zope2 even if it depends on PlonePAS. If Plone is installed an integration layer with a setup-profile and a plone-controlpanel page is available.

pas.plugins.ldap is not releated to the old LDAPUserFolder/ LDAPMultiPlugins and the packages stacked on top of it in any way.

It is based on node.ext.ldap, an almost framework independent ldap stack.

For now users and groups can’t be added or deleted. But properties on both are read/write. See section TODO.

Installation

Zope2

Add to the instance section of your buildout:

eggs =
    ...
    pas.plugins.ldap

zcml =
    ...
    pas.plugins.ldap

Run buildout. Restart Zope.

Then got to your acl_users folder and add an LDAP-Plugin. Configure it using the settings form and activate its features with the activate tab.

Plone

Add to the instance section of your buildout:

eggs =
    ...
    pas.plugins.ldap

Run buildout. Restart Plone.

Then go to the Plone control-panel, select extensions and install the LDAP Plugin. A new LDAP Settings icon appear on the left. Click it and configure the plugin there.

To use an own integration-profile, just add to the profiles metadata.xml file:

...
<dependencies>
    ...
    <dependency>profile-pas.plugins.ldap.plonecontrolpanel:default</dependency>
</dependencies>
...

Additionally ldap settings can be exported and imported with portal_setup. You can place the exported ldapsettings.xml in your integration profile, so it will be imported with your next install again. Attention: The ldap-password is in there in plain text!

History
