Integration with Active Directory  Requirements  Getting it going  Setting up Groups and Roles  Disabling default authentication Integration with OpenLDAP Requirements Getting it going Groups and Roles again LDAPS Requirements Setup Certificates export and import Course Objectives for this Module Getting Started with GroundWork Monitor Page 2

Resource How-to: Home > USING APPLICATIONS > Operational How To'sHome > USING APPLICATIONS > Operational How To's Some important points: LDAP users cannot be assigned to roles using the portal administrator application LDAP users do NOT need to be defined in the portal (this is different from GroundWork Monitor 5.x) Configuration of LDAP parameters is done outside of the User Interface, and requires a restart of gwservices. Role Names have changed User is now GWUser Operator is now GWOperator Admin is now GWAdmin Active Directory LDAP Authentication Configuration Page 4

5 © 2009 GroundWork Open Source, Inc. Required: Active Directory domain controller to which you have access Account with rights to browse the container in which you store the users: Example: ldapauth, context: cn=ldapauth,ou=GWUsers,dc=demo,dc=com Optional: Roles in the portal for desired access levels A container and groups set up to match roles in the portal Useful: Adsiedit.msc Active Directory: Requirements LDAP Authentication Configuration Page 5

6 © 2009 GroundWork Open Source, Inc. Organizational Unit (OU)  GWUsers Groups in the OU  GWUser  GWAdmin  GWOperator Users and membership  ldapauth  adminGWAdmin  test1GWOperator  test2GWUser  test3 Active Directory: Sample Set of Users and Groups LDAP Authentication Configuration Page 6

7 © 2009 GroundWork Open Source, Inc. Edit login-config.xml Copy and paste the section from the how-to Change the AD server name or IP address Change the LDAP admin user and password Change the contexts for the LDAP admin and users, roles Restart the portal (gwservices) Test the login Active Directory: Getting it going LDAP Authentication Configuration Page 7

8 © 2009 GroundWork Open Source, Inc. Add roles to the portal Example: Add Executive role Allow view to reports tab to Executive role Add groups to AD Example: Add Executive group Add user to Executive group Test the login Active Directory: Setting up groups and roles LDAP Authentication Configuration Page 8

9 © 2009 GroundWork Open Source, Inc. Roles are additive There is no (easy) way to change the automatic mapping of all AD users to the the GWUser role in the portal. Restrict this role if you do not want all users to have the default apps. Active Directory: Notes about Roles LDAP Authentication Configuration Page 9

10 © 2009 GroundWork Open Source, Inc. A good idea… because… LDAP Users are stored in portal with no password LDAP failure means all can login without password For instance is a user is deleted from LDAP… Easy to do (and undo): Edit login-config.xml: Comment out DBIdentityLoginModule section Change “sufficient” to “required” in SynchronizingLDAPExtLoginModule section Restart gwservices Disabling Default Authentication LDAP Authentication Configuration Page 10

11 © 2009 GroundWork Open Source, Inc. Some important points: OpenLDAP is hard to configure. OpenLDAP allows anonymous browsing by default. This can be a bad thing. Always configure GWME to use a user to access containers. The user must have access to browse the tree in the User and Role context containers OpenLDAP LDAP Authentication Configuration Page 11

12 © 2009 GroundWork Open Source, Inc. Required: An OpenLDAP server Administrative access to OpenLDAP (for setting up Users and Roles) A user account with rights to scan the containers for Users and Roles Useful: LDAP browser OpenLDAP: Requirements LDAP Authentication Configuration Page 12

13 © 2009 GroundWork Open Source, Inc. Login to the OpenLDAP server and set up the Users container (default is ou=People) Set up the Roles container Add users to Users container Add users to roles It is a good idea to test your LDAP user login for browsing. Note: root user is cn=manager by default, and while the uid=root object is in the People container, the context is the default, for example: cn=manager,dc=groundworkers,dc=com OpenLDAP: Getting it Going LDAP Authentication Configuration Page 13

14 © 2009 GroundWork Open Source, Inc. Edit login-config.xml Paste in the same text from the how-to as you would for active directory Change the LDAP server from the default to your OpenLDAP server Change the bindDN to the LDAP auth user Change the bindCredential to the LDAP auth user’s password Change the contexts for users and roles, and make sure to change the format of the role filter and attributes. These differ from AD. Restart gwservices Test login OpenLDAP: Getting it Going LDAP Authentication Configuration Page 14

15 © 2009 GroundWork Open Source, Inc. Setting up Role-based access in GWME and OpenLDAP is similar to the process with AD. The main differences are: OpenLDAP uses a separate container for the Roles (technically, groups), while AD typically places the groups in the same container as the users. To set up, match the roles in GWME to the roles in OpenLDAP as you would for AD, and add users to roles in OpenLDAP. OpenLDAP: Roles and Groups LDAP Authentication Configuration Page 15

16 © 2009 GroundWork Open Source, Inc. LDAPS is LDAP over SSL. Some important points: LDAPS requires a certificate. Administrators will likely already have this as a text files somewhere safe. This process goes through extracting the certificate, so care should be taken to use the correct parts of this procedure. LDAPS LDAP Authentication Configuration Page 16

17 © 2009 GroundWork Open Source, Inc. An OpenLDAP server with LDAPS turned on. The OpenLDAP setup completed as above, but stop before you restart the portlal. LDAPS: Requirements LDAP Authentication Configuration Page 17

18 © 2009 GroundWork Open Source, Inc. Edit login-config.xml Add the setting for SSL Change the LDAP server protocol and port Extract the cert from OpenLDAP (unless the administrator already has it) Run the openssl command Grab the cert from the output and place it in a text file (example ldaps.pem) Import the cert into JBoss Run the keytool command Restart gwservices LDAPS:Setup LDAP Authentication Configuration Page 18

19 © 2009 GroundWork Open Source, Inc. If the LDAP logins do not work: Check the framework.log file for startup errors. A simple problem with an XML tag can keep a module from loading and working. Enable debug for the org.jboss.security class, and look in the framework.log for JNDI error and debug messages. Errors will be in the form of java exceptions. Double check that you can log in with a LDAP client with the LDAP auth user and password, as entered in the login-config.xml. Also check a test user in user context. Log files in AD and OpenLDAP may also give clues. Troubleshooting LDAP Authentication Configuration Page 19
