Access Control Plugin - LDAP Users
Is there any way to use the access control plugin with LDAP authentication?
Thanks Fernando works like a charm!
I would love to try your unofficial plugin.
I will send you a message with my Email Address.
Yes. But actually is not officially supported.
When you use the LDAP plugin, this one creates temporal users; in this way, when an user logs on, the plugin will authenticate it vs your LDAP server or AD and insert the username in the DB with uType 900/901. When the user logs off then the user is erased from the DB. Working in this way you can not associate a rule of AccessControl to one or more user because the users are temporals.
I spoke with @Tom-Elliott about this problem and how solve. I have solved it with a temporal solution (in Spanish ñapa, chapuza, parche o solucion provisional con visos de definitiva) to this little problem. I have developed a little plugin that converts the temporal users in “eternal” users. This plugin is not official and we need to update the AccessControl to do this work and not create a new one.
If you want this unofficial plugin, I can send you by email.
