Using LDAP?

Postby barbarah » Fri May 06, 2011 2:39 pm

Hello all,

We are seriously considering using LDAP in conjunction with our implementation of OJS, and would love to get feedback from sites who are doing this. How was it to set up and what is it like to run it in production?

From what I've been able to gather from the wiki (http://pkp.sfu.ca/wiki/index.php/Setting_up_LDAP/Shibboleth) and here on the forum so far (http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=6024&start=0), the LDAP plugin requires some additional hacking in order to implement it in a way that maintains full user functionality in OJS.

Has anybody successfully implemented LDAP in OJS? If so, do you have tips and/or code you'd be willing to share?

Many thanks!

As a follow-up question: is the support for shibboleth and OJS any better than that for OJS? Would you recommend going that route instead? From what I can make out, it's also not well supported, and shibboleth is also more complex to set up, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask :-) Thanks!

Hi Barbarah,

I'll just step in quickly and say that we at PKP actually aren't that familiar with how these plugins work ourselves -- I believe both were originally contributed code from other projects -- but we'd be happy to hear how others use them.

Cheers,
James
