picketlink-authorization-idm-ldap: PicketLink IDM Authorization using LDAP

Author: Pedro Igor
Level: Beginner
Technologies: CDI, PicketLink, JSF
Summary: Basic example that demonstrates IDM-based authorization using a LDAP-based PicketLink IDM configuration
Source: https://github.com/jboss-developer/jboss-picketlink-quickstarts/

What is it?

You'll learn from this example how to authenticate and authorize users(role-based) against a LDAP server, using a LDAP-based Identity Store.

The latest PicketLink documentation is available here.

You can test this quickstart using the provided embedded LDAP server or you can configure this quickstart to connect to your own LDAP server. Instructions for both methods are provided below.

System requirements

All you need to build this project is Java 6.0 (Java SDK 1.6) or better, Maven 3.0 or better.

The application this project produces is designed to be run on JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 or WildFly.

Configure Maven

If you have not yet done so, you must Configure Maven before testing the quickstarts.

Start JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 or WildFly with the Web Profile

  1. Open a command line and navigate to the root of the JBoss server directory.

  2. The following shows the command line to start the server with the web profile:

     For Linux:   JBOSS_HOME/bin/standalone.sh
     For Windows: JBOSS_HOME\bin\standalone.bat
    

Configure LDAP

You can run this quickstart using your own or the embedded LDAP server. You must configure the LDAP server before you build and deploy the quickstart.

Configure the Quickstart to Use Your LDAP Server

To run this quickstart using your own LDAP Server, modify the String constant values in the org.jboss.as.quickstarts.picketlink.idm.ldap.IDMConfiguration class to the connection values for your LDAP server.

Configure the Quickstart to Use the Embedded LDAP Server

To run this quickstart using an embedded LDAP server:

  1. Open a new command line an navigate to the root of this quickstart directory.

  2. Execute the following command:

     mvn -Dtest=LDAPServer test
    
  3. The prompt does not return and you should see the following messages indicating the embedded LDAP server has started successfully:

     Running LDAPServer
     Starting Apache DS server
     Time taken = 71milisec
     Going to import LDIF:ldap/users.ldif
     Time taken = 6milisec
    

To terminate the embedded LDAP serve, hit CTRL-C.

Build and Deploy the Quickstart

NOTE: The following build command assumes you have configured your Maven user settings. If you have not, you must include Maven setting arguments on the command line. See Build and Deploy the Quickstarts for complete instructions and additional options.

  1. Make sure you have started the JBoss Server as described above.

  2. Open a command line and navigate to the root directory of this quickstart.

  3. Type this command to build and deploy the archive:

     For EAP 6:     mvn clean package jboss-as:deploy
     For WildFly:   mvn -Pwildfly clean package wildfly:deploy
    
  4. This will deploy target/picketlink-authorization-idm-ldap.war to the running instance of the server.

Access the application

The application will be running at the following URL: http://localhost:8080/picketlink-authorization-idm-ldap.

Undeploy the Archive

  1. Make sure you have started the JBoss Server as described above.

  2. Open a command line and navigate to the root directory of this quickstart.

  3. When you are finished testing, type this command to undeploy the archive:

     For EAP 6:     mvn jboss-as:undeploy
     For WildFly:   mvn -Pwildfly wildfly:undeploy
    

Run the Quickstart in JBoss Developer Studio or Eclipse

You can also start the server and deploy the quickstarts from Eclipse using JBoss tools. For more information, see Use JBoss Developer Studio or Eclipse to Run the Quickstarts

Debug the Application

If you want to debug the source code or look at the Javadocs of any library in the project, run either of the following commands to pull them into your local repository. The IDE should then detect them.

    mvn dependency:sources
    mvn dependency:resolve -Dclassifier=javadoc
