Set up LDAP integration for the TeamForge site

Follow these steps to convert your TeamForge installation to authenticate against your corporate OpenLDAP server.

Note: Refer to the Software requirements for TeamForge 17.8 topic for the supported OpenLDAP versions.
  1. Stop TeamForge.
    • /etc/init.d/collabnet stop all
  2. Edit the site-options.conf file.
    1. Enable TeamForge to use LDAP authentication by editing the site-options.conf file, for example, edit /opt/collabnet/teamforge/etc/site-options.conf file. Under "External User Authentication," uncomment this line:
      • USE_EXTERNAL_USER_AUTHENTICATION=false

      and change its value to true.

    2. Configure the site-options tokens.
      Note: The values specified for the following tokens are only for illustration purpose.
      • EXTERNAL_AUTHENTICATION_TYPE=ldap
      • LDAP_DN_PREFIX=cn=
      • LDAP_DN_SUFFIX=,cn=Users,dc=testldap,dc=qa,dc=collab,dc=net
      • LDAP_SERVER_URL=ldap://testldap.qa.collab.net:3268
  3. Provision services.
    • teamforge provision
    Note:

    TeamForge 17.4 (and later) installer expects the system locale to be LANG=en_US.UTF-8. TeamForge "provision" command fails otherwise.

  4. Start TeamForge.
    • /etc/init.d/collabnet start all
