Simple LDAP Login
Secondary uid support? (4 posts)

    I am fairly sure this USED to work, but after updating to the more recent versions (probably after the major rewrite), it doesn't seem to work any more...

    Mac OS X's OpenDirectory LDAP server supports and can verify against multiple uid values for a given dn. Now, if the wordpress user id doesn't match the first uid listed the authentication will fail.

    I wonder if it is related to this from a Drupal similar problem?

    Anyway, thanks for thinking about it. I may try to twiddle the source and see if I can determine anything further, but not sure I want to mess with a production site and don't know when I'll be able to set up a test one.

    I'm looking at installing an LDAP plugin, but I have the 3.8.1. Seems to me that from what I'm reading, this plugin doesn't work with the latest release. Please let me know your thoughts.

    I don't know, cmaudano, are you using Mac OS X Server and needing to log in against a secondary hid value? That is the only issue I was reporting, as far as I know all other use cases work as they did before. However, since reporting this it seems that even a straight attempt to authenticate against the LDAP server via ldapsearch fails with the secondary uid value, so it may not be the plugin's fault at all but rather something odd going on in the OSX Directory Server.

    Windows IIS.
    I typically do not work with servers, but now I have to figure out how to connect WordPress with our Active Directory so users can use their Windows username and password to gain access to our intranet.
