No as far as you need to configure LS to use LDAP to import tokens in order to manage participants, it works fine. I think it was better to have the possibility to have a field to write your own 'userfilter' (like in v1.98), but it works !

I didn't check the authentication delegation for the LS admin GUI to our WebServer.

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

Can anyone confirm that LS 2.00+ has working LDAP authentication?
I'm in particularly interested to authenticate admins against MS AD.

Thanks,
Maciej

At the moment this is not possible, but with the 2.05 beta that is just released you can write your own authentication plugin to handle loging in using LDAP. If you have the means to give that a try, please do so as we are still developing the plugin api and it helps to get feedback.

Maybe you can use:
An apache server with mod_auth_LDAP : httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/mod_auth_LDAP.html
and
use elegate Authentication to the Webserver : docs.limesurvey.org/Optional+settings#De...ion_to_the_Webserver

I also need to develop an authentication plugin. I looked at the documentation, and I can't find anything usable.

Where I put the plugin, where is the API, ...

There is not much documentation yet but when it comes it will be at manual.limesurvey.org/Plugins

For now you can check out the latest code on 2.05 branch from github and have a look at the core authentication plugins in /application/core/plugins
If you copy/rename them to /plugins you can create your own plugin. Since we are still exploring what would be needed to make a plugin work in all scenarios, feel free to drop a line here if something is unclear or if you can not find what you need.

When we release 2.05 we will update the documentation with the information needed to create your own plugin. Please note that we could still change the api at this moment (although we plan not to do that ofcourse).

Hi,

tnx for your info. I copied the plugin and made my own. In documentation is written, that if you use a server authentication, you must set $this->setAuthPlugin() in beforeLogin but the event newUserSession is never called. I missing something?

setAuthPlugin disables the login form, you use this this when you don't want to ask for user input.

Why do you think newUserSession is never called? Have a look at the /application/core/plugins/Authwebserver/Authwebserver.php to see how that works.

Maybe you forgot to subscribe to the newUserSsession event?

Yes, I created new plugin from this one. I subscribed to newUserSession event and also disabled login form with setAuthPlugin. When I debug, the newUserSession even't dosen't get called.

Can you share the code somewhere? And are you sure the plugin is activated?
