Rt3 and LDAP integration?

I looked through the docs and mailing list archives, perhaps not
thoroughly enough, but didn’t see anything that indicated that rt3.x can
use an LDAP server for authentication of users. Can it, and if so, can
anyone point me in the right directions?

Thanks

is the thread you want in regards to this has a User_Local.pm file for
auth with ldap.

I also recently sent of a tar.gz file to Jesse for the contrib directory
of rt3 repository, that will allow the mail system to do lookups on an
ldap server so that if a ldap user sends email, and a new account needs to
be created it will be created with the ldap userid.

Cheers,

If it’s still the same as rt2, it can use any authentication that
apache can use. I dropped in the mod_auth_pam apache module so it
uses approximately the same thing as the Linux system itself, which
is configured to check the local password file first, then use
pam_smb to authenticate against an NT domain controller. I don’t
think anything would have to change in the rt/apache setup to
use pam_ldap instead - or you could use mod_auth_ldap directly
in apache.

I modified rtimportldap to import my users from ldap -> MySQL directly,
and run it via cron. Not ideal, but at least it required no code changes
to RT directly.On Wed, 23 Jul 2003, John Jasen wrote:

Strange, because in the mailing list there is plenty of mails about
LDAP.
To be exact, RT3 can’t authenticate with LDAP. RT3 uses an external
authentication, the one of the Web Server.
I used Auth Ldap.
But probably it is not what you searched, because Apache settings
shouldn’t belong here.
I think you search for a User Information Lookup from LDAP, right?
I sent a mail, a week ago describing my experience and modules used.
It is a good way if you want to have all Infos from LDAP.
