Redmine 1.4 - Is there a way for adding user from ldap manually?

Added by Yang Tang about 9 years ago

Hello,

All of our projects are private.

Is there a way that find user from LDAP and then read/create account by LDAP inforamtion?
So that we can add members to the special groups for the private projects?

Thanks so much!

Hello,

I think the plugin LDAP_SYNC should do what you wan't.

Nevermind, sync above seems to do what you need.

Thanks for your suggestion!

Since industry association, my boss does not like to sync all accounts from LDAP. Who's request is only create the account for the people in need.

Thanks

"On-the-fly user creation" is a very nice feature!

As to our current situation, for example, there are two projects: ProjectA, ProjectB
We only wish share ProjectA to some other persons(they are in LDAP) who should not have access to ProjectB.

The current solution for us: Change both ProjectA and ProjectB to private projects and the grant the individual permission to the different users.

As this way, we have to grant permission manually after "On-the-fly user creation".

Is there any way that we can process user creation manually from LDAP server?

Thanks

Are they in a group? LDAP_SYNC supports only syncing a specific group, I'd recommend creating a group if you want to manage this from the LDAP side.

Unless they're already in a group and you can use LDAP_SYNC, how are you going to be able to determine who should have Redmine access and who shouldn't from the LDAP server itself other than hand-checking everyone?

If you can't you can just create accounts in Redmine by hand and set their authentication to your LDAP (it's a pulldown in the user creation page when you add the user), the only other option is to write a script, but that is only going to get you out of typing their name and e-mail, and you'll still have to manually populate that list...

Thanks so much Nabil!

I'll work with our IT for creating groups that we can use LDAP_SYNC for syncing accounts we needed.

Thanks again!
