Installation of Bugzilla and connecting it with LDAP

+2 votes
106 views

I have installed Bugzilla 4.4 on Apache. I have configured it for LDAP authentication. I have some users on LDAP and I wish to allow all of them to be able to file a bug on Bugzilla.

However, it appears that I still need to create all these users in bugzilla. Instead of creating 100 users one by one - is there a way I could insert records in some table OR any configuration by which the user is automatically created?

What is the best way to configure in this case?

Why do you think that? As I understand the documentation, your LDAP users simply need to successfully login to Bugzilla.

Check this link, should be helpful
http://www.bugzilla.org/docs/4.4/en/html/parameters.html#bzldap

You do not need to create the users before they login for the first time *unless* you want to set one of them as a contact on a bug (e.g. assignee, qa_contact, cc list) before they login.

When somebody logs in for the first time, their entry is created in the profiles table in your database, and then they can be set as a contact on a bug.

If you want to pre-populate the profiles table (or keep it up to date), contrib/syncLDAP.pl works very well.

We have integrated apache web server with our internal LDAP and we have requirement to provision role based access to the folders in the docroot. We have earlier used SVN and we were using AuthzSVNAccessFile to meet this requirement. Contents of the file will look like this.

[groups]
users = usera
admins = usera, userb
[/]
users = r

[/folderA]
admins= r

Now we are looking for something similar with the apache directives, is it possible? if not, can you please give us an alternate?

I have tried "Require ", it doesn’t solve our requirement.

There is a simple setup for svn users authentication on the server using LDAP.

 DAV svn
 SVNListParentPath on
 SVNParentPath /path_to_data
 SVNListParentPath on
 AuthzSVNAccessFile /path_to_accessfile/accfile

 AuthzLDAPAuthoritative off
 AuthType Basic
 AuthBasicProvider ldap
 AuthName "your login pls"
 AuthLDAPBindDN "blah-blah"
 AuthLDAPBindPassword "somepass"
 AuthLDAPURL "ldap://URL+DC?sub?(objectClass=*)"
 AuthzForceUsernameCase Lower
 Require valid-user

 CheckSpelling On

What I noticed is that svn server making a request for each svn URI or operation, which neither LDAP server likes nor users that could be waiting for their turn to be authenticated and see delays in svn server
response.

Could somebody point me where the problem is? I'd expect only one authentication request from the server when user presents himself first time (or after cache expires).
