LDAP Plugin for Pletfix

About This

This plugin provides a LDAP service to authenticate the user through the Active Directory.

Installation

Fetch the package by running the following terminal command under the application's directory:

composer require pletfix/ldap-plugin

After downloading, enter this command in your terminal to register the plugin:

php console plugin pletfix/ldap-plugin

Environment and Configuration

Add the following environment variables in your .env file:

LDAP_ACCOUNT_SUFFIX=YourYccountSuffix
LDAP_DOMAIN_CONTROLLER_1=YourPrimaryDC
LDAP_DOMAIN_CONTROLLER_2=YourSecondDC
LDAP_BASE_DN=YouBaseDN

At the next, open the configuration file ./config/ldap.php under the application's directory and override the defaults if you wish.

Customize

View

If you would like to modified the views of the plugin, create a folder ldap under the view directory of the application, and copy the views there. Here you can edit the views as you like:

mkdir ./resources/views/ldap 
cp -R ./vendor/pletfix/ldap-plugin/views/* ./resources/views/ldap

If you have installed the Pletfix Application Skeleton, you could add the necessary menu items ("login" and "logout") by including the partial _nav in your resources/views/app.blade.php layout just above the marker {{--menu_point--}}:

   @include('ldap._nav')

Routes

If you like to use another route paths, copy the route entries from ./vendor/pletfix/ldap-plugin/boot/routes.php into the application's routing file ./boot/routes.php, where you can modify them as you wish:

$route->get('ldap/login',  'LdapController@showForm');
$route->post('ldap/login', 'LdapController@login');

Usage

User Authentication

Enter the following URL into your Browser to open the login form:

https://<your-application>/ldap/login

User Role

The "memberof" attribute is used to determine the user role. You may edit the member mapping in the configuration file config/ldap.

User Model

If you have defined a user model in the configuration, the user attributes are stored in the database. By default, the user model from the Pletfix Application Skeleton is used and no further migration is required.

Logout

You may invoke just the following command to logout the user:

auth()->logout();

LDAP Service

Accessing the LDAP service

You can get an instance of the LDAP Service from the Dependency Injector:

/** @var Pletfix\Ldap\Services\Contracts\Ldap $ldap */
$ldap = DI::getInstance()->get('ldap');

You can also use the ldap() function to get the LDAP service, it is more comfortable:

$ldap = ldap();

Available Methods

search()

Search LDAP tree and get all result entries.

$users = $ldap->search('userprincipalname=Fr*');

getUsers()

Get the user entries.

$users = $ldap->getUsers();

You may also set a filter for the userprincipalname attribute:

$users = $ldap->getUsers('Fr*');

getUser()

Get the user attributes by given username (userPrincipalName or samAccountName).

$user = $ldap->getUser('FrankR');

You may define the attributes of the user in the configuration file config/ldap.

authenticate()

Authenticate the user through the Active Directory.

$isAuthenticated = $ldap->authenticate($username, $password);

getErrorCode()

Return the LDAP error code of the last LDAP command.

$errorCode = $ldap->getErrorCode();

getErrorMessage()

Return the LDAP error message of the last LDAP command.

$errorMessage = $ldap->getErrorMessage();
You can’t perform that action at this time.
