Sample Configuration

Forum Systems is providing a free online LDAP test server that you can use for testing. If all you need is to test connectivity and do a proof of concept of connecting TYPO3 with an LDAP server, this is the right place to eliminate the need to download, install and configure an LDAP server just for testing. read more.

Sections:

LDAP

Option Value
Server Type OpenLDAP
Host ldap.forumsys.com
Port 389
Bind DN cn=read-only-admin,dc=example,dc=com
Password password
Relation between groups and users Group contains the list of its members

BE_USERS

Option Value
Base DN dc=example,dc=com
Filter (uid={USERNAME})
Mapping
email = <mail>
realName = <cn>
tstamp = {DATE}
admin = 1

Warning

In this example, the last mapping line will automatically promote every LDAP user as TYPO3 administrator. This should of course be enabled only for quick testing without having to bother with available modules.

Filter (&(uniqueMember={USERDN})(ou=*))
Mapping
