General question regarding LDAP setup

Added by Kirill Marchuk about 2 years ago

Hi all

We have a Redmine 2.6.9.stable, and we also have an OpenDJ LDAP server.

Now we have like 100+ users in each of the systems, and they're pretty much the same persons. So we decided to implement LDAP SSO for Redmine.

We have added a LDAP Authentication mode, it passes "Connection test", but it displays "0" in "Users" column.

Now I wonder, how do we leave the existing users with all their history and tasks, but make them authenticate via LDAP ? How is that supposed to be working ?

Thanks for any help!

brief update: now I've learned about the "Authentication mode" per-user setting. It works great!

So, a little question is left: what if we enable "on-the-fly" user creation - the currently existing (in Redmine) users will not be transferred again ?

The following worked for me:

1- Moved all the users to the LDAP authentication
2- When they signed in and the username and email id matched it automatically logged in but didnt update the existing information.
3- If user is already there and on the fly is selected. As user is register new name will not be added. A new name will be added only when there is a mismatch between user-id and email.
