Extension config settings edit

When using them in LocalSettings.php, these variables need to be prefixed with $LDAPAuthorization
Name Default Description
AutoAuthRemoteUserStringParserRegistry
{
 "domain-backslash-username": "MediaWiki\\Extension\\LDAPAuthorization\\AutoAuth\\RemoteUserStringParser\\DomainBackslashUsername::factory",
 "username-at-domain": "MediaWiki\\Extension\\LDAPAuthorization\\AutoAuth\\RemoteUserStringParser\\UsernameAtDomain::factory"
}
A registry of factory callbacks for different parsers, that extract domain and username from a provided domain-username.

Must return IRemoteUserStringParser object.

Only used in case of auto-authentication provided by Extension:Auth remoteuser .

AutoAuthRemoteUserStringParser "domain-backslash-username" Configures which parser is needed to extract domain and username from a provided domain-username. Allowed values are:
  • "domain-backslash-username" (Use this if $_SERVER['REMOTE_USER'] = "SOMEDOMAIN\\Some username")
  • "username-at-domain" (Use this if $_SERVER['REMOTE_USER'] = "some.username@somedomain.local")

Only used in case of auto-authentication provided by Auth remoteuser.

AutoAuthUsernameNormalizer "" A callback that allows to modify the username when Extension:Auth_remoteuser is used for network based authentication. E.g. "strtolower". If form based authentication is also enabled though Extension:LDAPAuthentication2 this should have the same value as $LDAPAuthentication2UsernameNormalizer.

Only used in case of auto-authentication provided by Extension:Auth remoteuser .

Domain config settings edit

Name Default Description
rules.groups.required [] Array of group DNs that are required to complete the login process. Belonging to one group is sufficient (logical OR) to be authorized.
rules.groups.excluded [] Array of group DNs that the user may not be member of to complete the login process. Belonging to one group is sufficient (logical OR) to be forbidden to log in.
rules.attributes {} This implements the "attributes mapping" rule from Extension:LDAP Authentication

Example:

{
    "&" : {
    	"status": "active",
    	"|": {
    		"department": [ "100", "200" ],
    		"level": [ "5", "6" ]
    	}
    }
}
rules.query "" Allows to provide a standard LDAP query to be tested against the user. Comparable to $wgLDAPAuthAttribute from Extension:LDAP Authentication

Example:

&(active=TRUE)(permissionAlias=cn=X,ou=Y,ou=accounts,dc=company,dc=local)

Example 1 edit

If you want to configure this in LocalSettings.php you can extend the configuration for LDAPProvider like in this example:

$LDAPProviderDomainConfigProvider = function() {
	$config = [
		'LDAP' => [
			'connection' => [
				...
			],
			'authorization' => [
				'rules' => [
					'groups' => [
						'required' => [ "groupname" ]
					]
				]
			]
		]
	];
...

Example 2 edit

Here is a complete example LocalSettings.php configuration for Active Directory:

$LDAPProviderDomainConfigProvider = function()
{
	$config =
	[
		"example.com" =>
		[
			"connection" =>
			[
				"server" => "ldap.example.com",
				"user" => "cn=ldap,cn=Users,dc=example,dc=com",
				"pass" => "password",
				"basedn" => "dc=example,dc=com",
				"groupbasedn" => "dc=example,dc=com",
				"userbasedn" => "dc=example,dc=com",
				"searchattribute" => "samaccountname",
				"searchstring" => "USER-NAME@example.com",
				"usernameattribute" => "samaccountname",
				"realnameattribute" => "cn",
				"emailattribute" => "mail",
				"grouprequest" => "MediaWiki\\Extension\\LDAPProvider\\UserGroupsRequest\\GroupMember::factory"
			],
			"authorization" =>
			[
				"rules" =>
				[
					"groups" =>
					[
						"required" => [ "cn=Developers,cn=Users,dc=example,dc=com" ]
					]
				]
			],
			"groupsync" =>
			[
				"mechanism" => "mappedgroups",
				"mapping" =>
				[
					"sysop" => "cn=Developers,cn=Users,dc=example,dc=com",
					"bureaucrat" => "cn=Developers,cn=Users,dc=example,dc=com"
				]
			],
			"userinfo" =>
			[
				"email" => "mail",
				"realname" => "cn",
				"properties.gender" => "gender"
			]
		]
	];

	return new \MediaWiki\Extension\LDAPProvider\DomainConfigProvider\InlinePHPArray( $config );
};
