The Sync LDAP User Directory Manager is a hybrid solution that allows you to make use of the user objects from your organization's LDAP server and maintaining organization structure (organization / department / group) locally inside Joget Workflow.

This plugin allows you to import user objects from LDAP server on demand into Joget Workflow's built in user directory manager to reduce its dependency on the LDAP server for improved performance.

New Feature

This is a new feature in Joget Workflow v6.

Important Information

The built in user directory manager is still the primary handler when this plugin is activated. Once you have synchronized the users to the local directory manager, you can assign the users to your organization/department/group/grade which created locally.

Sync Users

With the use of this plugin, we will be able to reduce the conventional load and dependency on the LDAP server and to only use it for authentication purpose.

The administrator of Joget Workflow will hit on the Sync Users button when required to perform synchronization with the LDAP server.

User Base DN


If you set the "User Base DN" to your LDAP Root DN, it means that the search will start from the Root DN until it finds all the results that matched the search filter.

So, setting the "User Base DN" precisely is very important as it will decide where the search is starting from. It will save all the unnecessary search between the Root DN to your "User Base DN".

Root DN
Under the Root DN, you have the following DN:
DC=Product Department,DC=joget,DC=org

If your users are all under "DC=Users, DC=joget,DC=org", you should set this to "User Base DN".

By doing this, it will not go through all the other entries and it's child entries before reaching "DC=Users, DC=joget,DC=org".
User Import Search Filter




This mean all the LDAP entries which have "objectClass" attribute equals to "person" and "cn" attribute equals to either "admin", "cat", "jack", "john" or "jackie" are Joget users.

So, when a login is performed by "admin", the search filter will add additional filter and become "(&(&(objectClass=person)(|(cn=admin)(cn=cat)(cn=jack)(cn=john)(cn=jackie)))(cn=admin))". 

You will notice an extra (cn=admin) is added to the search filter to make sure it return only the "admin" user.

User License

User license determines on how many eventual users (sorted alphabetically) from your LDAP/AD can log in into the system. You can make use of this attribute to control amount of users returned from your LDAP.

Debug Mode



The Debug Mode is highly recommended to be turned on when configuring the LDAP plugin for the first time.
When debug mode is on, you can find all the search queries performed by the directory manager. They will all be logged into the log file. From there, you can observe the search filter string and improve the accuracy and performance of the lookup.
