LDAP Authentication from 2 domains

I am using alfresco Community - 5.1.0 (r127059-b7)

Currently I am doing LDAP authentication from 1 domain with the following entry in the config:

ldap.authentication.userNameFormat=%s@x.y.z

Now I need additionally a second domain like:

ldap.authentication.userNameFormat=%s@a.b.c

How I can do ldap authentication from 2 domains ?

Is that somehow possible?

How would be the entry in the config ?

thx for your help

Hi,

never had to use this, but maybe a starting point:

Re: LDAP Authentication from 2 domains

Hi:

Consider a more complex authentication chain composed by two ldap-ad in alfresco-global.properties

authentication.chain=ldap1:ldap-ad,ldap2:ldap-ad

And you have to create an structure under

$TOMCAT/shared/classes/alfresco/extension/subsystems/Authentication/ldap-ad

.
├── ldap1
│  └── ldap-ad-authentication.properties

└── ldap2
    └── ldap-ad-authentication.properties

for the corresponding properties, than now are not in alfresco-global.properties

Re: LDAP Authentication from 2 domains

By the way, regarding the example I would say that in recent Alfresco 5 versions, it is not possible to copy the authentication subsystem sample properties from WEB-INF. Now they are inside a jar.

Re: LDAP Authentication from 2 domains

I tried that way already, but the users of the other domain will not be synced.

Our current domain is ldap2, group and users are from the same domain z.b.c,

ldap1 is in in the tree, but not current domain, group is in z.b.c, the users coming from a.b.c

As you can see in the logfile, ldap2 will be synced properly, group+users

but ldap1 only the group will be synced, not the users.

Re: LDAP Authentication from 2 domains

just a question for understanding:

Is the LDAP Source ldap.authentication.java.naming.provider.url=ldap://xx.xx.xx.xx

the same in both configurations?

Re: LDAP Authentication from 2 domains

have you tried your queries with a ldap tool (like Apache Directory Studio) to verify the results?
