This module allows users to log into your Apostrophe site via their LDAP account, as an optional alternative to using their password.
There must be an existing user on the site with the same email address as the LDAP account.
This module also requires that you install the
passport module globally, so that we can be sure the same instance of
passport is seen by both Apostrophe's standard login and
npm install --save apostrophe-ldap-login npm install --save passport
First, you must require
var passport = ;
Third, you must configure the
apostrophe-ldap-login module in
app.js, along with the other modules of your project:
modules:"apostrophe-ldap-login":url: 'ldap://localhost'bindDn: 'cn=Administrator'bindCredentials: 'secret'searchBase: 'dc=example,dc=com'// Make sure you pass in passportpassport: passport// Where to redirect the user if LDAP login fails, or they// have an account but it is not associated with your site.// Sending them to your login page is a good choice. You might// override it with a suitable error message in this case.failureRedirect: '/login?query=ldapFailure=1'// ... other modules ...
Note: you may want to use
data/local.js to merge different settings on your production server, so you can continue to test LDAP login in development as well. That looks like this:
// In data/local.jsmoduleexports =// Other settings, then...modules:'apostrophe-ldap-login':url: 'ldap://ldap.production.site.com'baseUrl: '';
To change authentication to LDAP, just copy
views/global and change
That's all there is to it!
