Redmine 1.3.0, Kerberos (SPNEGO), LDAP and automatic user creation

Added by John Wilcox almost 6 years ago

We are using Redmine 1.3.0 internally in our company for pure task management. I have set up some users and SSO implemented with SPNEGO works just fine with this plugin: https://github.com/AdamLantos/redmine_http_auth (Apache + kerberos).
However, since we have about 500 users which all need to be created and maintained in Redmine, manual work is not a viable solution. Even more - they are already maintained in Microsoft Windows Active Directory.

So, here is my question/problem: how can I sync (create users, disable users) with Microsoft Windows Active Directory? The critical part is user creation at the moment. I do not want LDAP based authentication - kerberos is working just fine and is inherently more secure than LDAP based authentication.

I have found this: https://github.com/edavis10/redmine_extra_ldap but it seems a little "young" and I haven't tested it yet.

Maybe https://github.com/thorin/redmine_ldap_sync can help. I didn't try it by myself, so I don't know whether it fits for your task (maintaining groups from LDAP while doing authentication via apache/kerberos). But this also seems to be a "young" one...

If anyone reads this and likes the sound of the plugin:
- https://github.com/AdamLantos/redmine_http_auth (Apache + kerberos).

Be aware that there are more recent forks of that on Github: eg this one claims to support 3.x

- https://github.com/Intera/redmine_env_auth

(In Github: you can always use the Fork icon top right, to search for new versions of something you like!)
