LDAP People Synchronization not working [SOLVED]

Question asked by blcching on Mar 30, 2009
Hi,

I actually successfully syn people and group by modifying ldap-synchronization-context.xml. However, now, I would like to syn only people, so I removed the configuration for "ldapGroupTrigger" in ldap-synchronization-context.xml. The result is the server startup ok but people is not syn by the scheduler.

The modified ldap-synchronization-context.xml

   <bean name="ldapSynchronisationPlaceholderConfigurer" class="org.springframework.beans.factory.config.PropertyPlaceholderConfigurer">

      Wire up the same context as used for LDAP authentication. You could use another context: just replace this
       alias with the bean definition
    –>
   
    <alias alias="ldapSyncInitialDirContextFactory" name="ldapInitialDirContextFactory"/>

    <!– Ldap Syncronisation support –>
   
    <!–
       
    There can be more than one stack of beans that import users or groups. For example, it may be easier
    to have a version of ldapPeopleExportSource, and associated beans, for each sub-tree of your ldap directory
    from which you want to import users. You could then limit users to be imported from two or more sub tress and ignore
    users found else where. The same applies to the import of groups.
        
    The defaults shown below are for OpenLDAP.

        <!–
        The query to select objects that represent the users to import.
       
        For Open LDAP, using a basic schema, the following is probably what you want:
        (objectclass=inetOrgPerson)
       
        For Active Directory:
        (objectclass=user)
        –>
        <property name="personQuery">
            <value>${ldap.synchronisation.personQuery}</value>
        </property>

        The seach base restricts the LDAP query to a sub section of tree on the LDAP server.
        –>
        <property name="searchBase">
            <value>${ldap.synchronisation.personSearchBase}</value>
        </property>
       
        <!–
        The unique identifier for the user.
       
        THIS MUST MATCH WHAT THE USER TYPES IN AT THE LOGIN PROMPT   
       
        For simple LDAP authentication this is likely to be "cn" or, less friendly, "distinguishedName"
       
        In OpenLDAP, using other authentication mechanisms "uid", but this depends on how you map
        from the id in the LDAP authentication request to search for the inetOrgPerson against which
        to authenticate.

        In Active Directory this is most likely to be "sAMAccountName"

        This property is mandatory and must appear on all users found by the query defined above.

        This property defines a mapping between attributes held on LDAP user objects and

I finally solved. It works after I modified my personQuery in ldap-synchronisation-properties.xml but wonder why there was no error or message output on the console and I turned logger on "log4j.logger.org.alfresco.repo.security.authentication.ldap=debug".
