Description

It seems that Redmine versions > 1.0.0 have a problem with OpenLDAP. I've configured LDAP authentication with valid settings (works on 1.0.0) on Redmine 1.0.1, 1.0.5, 1.1.1 and my attempts failed with a "Invalid user or password" message. I did further tests with Active Directory servers, all of them allowed me to authenticate. So I really think that it's related in some way to OpenLDAP.

Setup 1-2:

Redmine 1.0.1 - Redmine 1.0.5
Rails 2.3.5
Ruby 4.5
MySQL 5.1

Setup 3:

Redmine 1.1.1 BitNami stack

For information, my OpenLDAP server is configured as a metadirectory (accounts are stored in two Active Directory servers)

History

#1 Updated by Laurent Nominé over 11 years ago

Erratum: It's not working either in 1.0.0, I forgot that I was using a third-party authentication plugin on this setup.

Did you check "create users on-the-fly", since you have to register on redmine for first usage?

#3 Updated by Laurent Nominé over 11 years ago

Yes. Anyway,it's perfectly working with AD. But not with OpenLDAP, at least in a meta-directory configuration.

Is this issue the same as #6925?
