Configuring AD ( LDAP) on Community Edition 201911

I downloaded and install the Alfresco  Community Edition 201911 installed it on Centos 8  Per Instructions. ( there are errors in the instructions ) , but I got it up and running , 

now I'm tryingto configure Active Directory authentication. searching there is more then one way top do this , 1) is usingthe admin console and usingthe direcory tab , I can't find that tab any where!!! 

 or manually edit the  alfresco-global.properties file. where is that file  ? for that matter where are any ofthe config files ? 

I do a find . -name alfresco-global.properties from  /  

and I get this 

[root@own /]#   find . -name alfresco-global.properties
find: ‘./proc/30883/task/30883/net’: Invalid argument

Re: Configuring AD ( LDAP) on Community Edition 201911

Using the Alfresco Docker images, you typically do not configure the alfresco-global.properties itself, but use the JAVA_OPTS parameter to append a bunch of -Dldap.xyz.key=value property flags to it.

Generally speaking, it is completely normal for an Alfresco installation to contain multiple alfresco-global.properties files. There is a mechanism in place which will load sub-groups of them in a specific order, and typically the one in ..tomcat/shared/classes/ is the final one, meaning that it can override any configuration from other files of the same name.

Hi @Splat,

As @afaust  says,  java_opts can be set in the alfresco-global.properties file located in $TOMCAT_HOME/shared/classes/ . The documentation provides an example here. Restart Tomcat & your changes should take effect.
