This section describe the process of configuring LDAP with IceHrm
PHP LDAP extension should be installed for LDAP to work. Also make sure you can connect ot the LDAP host via the provided port
Before using please install php-ldap module.
For PHP 5.3
$> sudo apt-get install php5-ldap
For PHP 7.0
$> sudo apt-get install php-ldap
For PHP 7.
$> sudo apt-get install php7.3-ldap
LDAP can be enabled via System -> Settings -> LDAP. Make sure to configure all the parameters correctly
IceHrm can not extract users automatically from LDAP. You need to create a matching user in IceHrm with the same username. For an example if you have a user in your LDAP with username "user1" and password "pass123". Then you need to:
- 1.Create a user in icehrm with username "user1"
- 2.No need to set a password, as we will use LDAP to authenticate this user
- 3.The new user can login with username "user1" and password "pass123", which is his/her LDAP password
The user "admin" will always login with local db username and password (even LDAP is enabled)
This is a way to debug your LDAP setup. You can try to connect to a test LDAP server to find out if the problem is with your LDAP setup or if IceHrm
Use these config to test LDAP connection with following test LDAP server http://www.forumsys.com/tutorials/integration-how-to/ldap/online-ldap-test-server/
Then create a user with username "riemann" under System->Users
Logout and try login with riemann/password
If you are facing login issues after enabling LDAP, you can still login as user "admin" and disable LDAP
