3.4.d Community / Centos 5.5 x64 LDAP Sync

Question asked by bensewell on May 6, 2011

Hi,

Been trawling through various blogs, forum entries and the Alfresco wiki for the past few days and think I understand how the Alfresco LDAP sync works.  I have the system working fine logging users on through AD rather than using the local ntml accounts.  So this will stop using AD as a ondemand per user logon request and use a LDAP usergroup sync / export using an LDAP query and registry export.

The working config to get Alfresco working with LDAP i used the following changes in global config file.


### Authentication###
authentication.chain=ldap1:ldap,alfrescoNtlm1:alfrescoNtlm

ldap.authentication.active=true
ldap.authentication.java.naming.security.authentication=simple
ldap.authentication.userNameFormat=%s@mydomain.uk
ldap.authentication.allowGuestLogin=false
ldap.authentication.java.naming.provider.url=ldap://myadserver:389
###ldap.authentication.defaultAdministratorUserNames=sewellb
ldap.synchronization.active=false


With this setup I can login with the local admin account or with any user in our AD server.  They have no rights until the Alfresco administrator grants the relevant rights.

Now I want to switch to AD groups and import users who are based in the "All IT Department" so after looking at a few articles including:

http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/The_Synchronization_Subsystem

http://forums.alfresco.com/en/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=20360

So i need to switch the way that Alfresco logs in to using LDAP sync rather than lookup on demand so this can be done by changing the following:

dap.authentication.active=false
    ldap.synchronization.active=true

So can this be changed on the global config file or in the relevant ldap authentication / ldap sync subsystem folder config files.

I’m a bit confused as there is conflicting information to how to do this with variations of versions and OS. 

In one article (Alfresco 3 Enterprise Content Management Implementation Book) it says to copy the ldap-synchronisation-context.xml.sample and rename to ldap-synchronisation-context.xml but I cant find this file anywhere on my centos box.  Lots of ldap files like common-ldap-context.xml and ldap-ad-authenication.properties kind of files but can’t find this specific file so this option is a no go.

The next option is from the another strange me article (http://www.anotherstrangerme.com/alfresco-3-3g-integration-with-active-directory-and-google-docs/) which is aimed at a Windows installation and involves changing the global properties file to swap the chaining line order to passthru, ldap, alfrescoNtlm which was done.  Then creating a passthru file with the following data in:

passthru.authentication.useLocalServer=false
passthru.authentication.domain=domaina.a.com
# (domain specific property): NetBIOS name of your domain and
# domain controller’s IP address, add more separated by commas
passthru.authentication.servers=domaina@a.com\\192.168.0.1,192.168.0.1
ntlm.authentication.sso.enabled=true
alfresco.authentication.allowGuestLogin=false
ntlm.authentication.mapUnknownUserToGuest=false
passthru.authentication.authenticateCIFS=true
passthru.authentication.authenticateFTP=false
passthru.authentication.guestAccess=false
# (domain specific property): list of usernames from AD
# that are to be Alfresco administrators
passthru.authentication.defaultAdministratorUserNames=sewellb@domaina.com,sewellb

I think this guidance might be wrong and the following required.

passthru.authentication.domain=domaina.a.com
passthru.authentication.servers=192.168.0.1,192.168.0.1


Next the guide reccomends editing the web.xml file which I have found in the

/opt/alfresco-3.4.d/tomcat/webapps/share/webinf directory and then put the following into the file:
<filter>
<filter-name>Authentication Filter</filter-name>
<filter-class>org.alfresco.web.site.servlet.NTLMAuthenticationFilter</filter-class>
<init-param>
<param-name>endpoint</param-name>
<param-value>alfresco</param-value>
</init-param>
</filter>

<filter-mapping>
<filter-name>Authentication Filter</filter-name>
<url-pattern>/s/*</url-pattern>
</filter-mapping>

Then copy and rename the share-config-custom.xml.sample file to share-config-custom.xml and save this in the /opt/alfresco-3.4.d/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/web-extension and add the following into the file.

<!–
NTLM authentication config for Share
NOTE: you will also need to enable the NTLM authentication filter in Share web.xml
change localhost:8080 below to appropriate alfresco server location if required
–>
<config evaluator="string-compare" condition="Remote">
<remote>
<connector>
<id>alfrescoCookie</id>
<name>Alfresco Connector</name>
<description>Connects to an Alfresco instance using cookie-based authentication</description>
<class>org.springframework.extensions.webscripts.connector.AlfrescoConnector</class>
</connector>
<endpoint>
<id>alfresco</id>
<name>Alfresco – user access</name>
<description>Access to Alfresco Repository WebScripts that require user authentication</description>
<connector-id>alfrescoCookie</connector-id>
<endpoint-url>http://localhost:8080/alfresco/wcs</endpoint-url>
<identity>user</identity>
<external-auth>true</external-auth>
</endpoint>
</remote>
</config>
This was already in the file so wasn’t required to edit.

Next to edit a file in the subsystems folder ldap-ad\ldap-ad1\changes.properties.

I didn’t have this file so created one and added it to the (/opt/alfresco-3.4.d/tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/subsystems/Authentication/ldap-ad) the following into it.  In the guide it uses the AD group called Alfresco Groups so I did a find and replace and replaced the entries with “All IT Department” so the queries should run on this user group.  I also changed the last flag to state to false to get all data.

Synchronization.synchronizechangesOnly=false

   #

    # that this subsytem should only be used for synchronization, in which case

    ldap.authentication.java.naming.security.authentication=simple

    # This flag enables use of this LDAP subsystem for user and group

    # The group search base restricts the LDAP group query to a sub section of tree on the LDAP server.

    # The name of the operational attribute recording the last update time for a group or user.
    ldap.synchronization.modifyTimestampAttributeName=modifyTimestamp

    # The timestamp format. Unfortunately, this varies between directory servers.
    ldap.synchronization.timestampFormat=yyyyMMddHHmmss'.0Z'

    # The attribute name on people objects found in LDAP to use as the uid in Alfresco

    # The person type in LDAP
    ldap.synchronization.personType=user

    # The attribute in LDAP on group objects that defines the DN for its members
    ldap.synchronization.groupMemberAttributeName=member

    synchronization.synchronizeChangesOnly=true

With these changes in place when the Alfresco services restart I am prompted for a username and password before the alfresco and share pages load with the login screens and or randomly gets an apache error.  This appears like it is using cookie based authentication as per the another stranger me guide.

So I swapped the chaining order and tried again.

This time the /alfresco webapp worked fine but couldn’t login to /share. 

Anyone have a definitive easy how to get the LDAP sync working.  Seems to be a tricky config for lots of people.

I have tried all sorts but am getting very confused with it all.

INFO: Initializing Spring FrameworkServlet 'Spring MVC Dispatcher Servlet'[/quote]

The catalina out has a massive error log so will sift through it and post any relevant errors.  When i get this working i'm going to write a simple how to do it guide and post it onto this forum as this is very tricky.

Any advice would be really appreciated.

All the best, Ben :)
