Once installed, this plugin will authenticate against an LDAP server. It uses a user defined search
filter to lookup the users distinguished name (DN) and uses that for the final authentication.
Additionally, it is able to synchronize users roles (i.e. Contributor, Administrator, etc.) for
LDAP based users. Put them in a posixGroup, groupOfNames, organizationalRole, etc and map an
attribute to be used as the final role. This mapping gets synchronized every time the user
authenticates himself to WordPress.
- Userdefined user lookup filters
- Userdefined role lookup filters
- Enforce LDAP only roles
- Enforce LDAP only users (but keep local administrators)
- Fallback LDAP servers
- Why another LDAP authenticator for WordPress?
Everyone seems to do another authenticator which is fitting the current needs. So do I 😉
Well — I think the main difference is that you can use various LDAP services with special directory
layouts with this implementation.
