Introduction:

How to configure Release automation to use multiple ldap AD domains for authentication .
The documentation on docops describe how to enable ldap configuration for a single domain.
How can we configure  multiple ldap AD domains .

 

 

Instructions:

With RA 6.3 build 9840 it is possible to configure multiple AD ldap domains in in your distributed.properties file .
If you have seperate AD domains which are not integrated in a AD forest.

This should look like :


use.active.directory.authentication=true # This is only set once.

use.active.directory.domain=testdom.ca.com
use.active.directory.url=ldap:/ldapserver/:389
use.active.directory.user.username=ldapadmin@testdom.ca.com
use.active.directory.user.password=....

use.active.directory.domain.1=testdom1.ca.com
use.active.directory.url.1=ldap://ldapserver1:389
use.active.directory.user.username.1=ldapadmin@testdom1.ca.com
use.active.directory.user.password.1=....

use.active.directory.domain.2=testdom2.ca.com
use.active.directory.url.2=ldap:/ldapserver2:389
use.active.directory.user.username.2=ldapadmin@testdom2.ca.com
use.active.directory.user.password.2=...

 

If this is a active directory forest the first entry in the domain list needs to be the root domain
and instead of connecting to the local domains ldap server we need to connect to the global catalog for this forist
on port 3268 , all other domains connect to there ldap port on 389 .

use.active.directory.authentication=true # This is only set once.

use.active.directory.domain=ca.com
use.active.directory.url=ldap:/ldapserver/:3268
use.active.directory.user.username=ldapadmin@ca.com
use.active.directory.user.password=....
 
use.active.directory.domain.1=testdom1.ca.com
use.active.directory.url.1=ldap://ldapserver1:389
use.active.directory.user.username.1=ldapadmin@testdom1.ca.com
use.active.directory.user.password.1=....
 
use.active.directory.domain.2=testdom2.ca.com
use.active.directory.url.2=ldap:/ldapserver2:389
use.active.directory.user.username.2=ldapadmin@testdom2.ca.com
use.active.directory.user.password.2=...
