Frappe Based App: LDAP login


#41

Dear All,

As I have all my other apps running via LDAP for authentication, this is obviously a very interesting discussion. How much progress has been made so far with LDAP? My feeling is that ERPNext would benefit greatly from solid LDAP support for username/password management, means: for authentication. I am less keen to manage groups and such via LDAP - this tends to get complex and may not always get us the expected benefits. Thoughts?

Has there been any development on this? LDAP, WordPress, and Stripe are pretty much the only integrations I’m interested in. I’ve been waiting to move my enterprise clients over to ERPNext, but require LDAP for authentication :-/


#43

@andromache @chlarsen have you tried to install it?
@saurabh6790 any news from your end?

  • And now, this is my Login Page:


#45

Hallo,

after installing the frappe_ldap app, the login page looks corrupted and even the administrator login is not working anymore. I am using Debian 8 Jessie.

I used the following commands to install it:
bench get-app frappe https://github.com/frappe/frappe.git
bench install-app frappe_ldap

Also installing the app via web interface leads to the same problem.

Thank you very much for your help.
Lars

Hi everyone,

For those errores above, there are some corrections on code.
Details are in

Commit “Recuperación login”

The changes are for:

  • Recover in few steps login CSS for erpNext and LDAP
  • Recover login functionality for an user

I’m working still on other things (like Add Modules, edit configuration installer, others), but you can add the changes generated until now and get the login fixed. Already read, test and review other posts discussion about it until an stable version.

My recommendation is to :slight_smile:

  • Make the install through the App Installer available on the Search Engine inside ErpNext. After installation the only way you can access the LDAP modules is (again) with Search Engine (working on the Module Menu).

  • The next error happens because during installation is set that only the Administrator profile can access the DocTypes, so be sure to login correctly.

File “/home/thiagopr/frappe-bench/apps/frappe/frappe/init.py”, line 806, in call
return fn(*args, **newargs)
TypeError: get() takes exactly 1 argument (0 given)

Hope it helps,

@violetasdev thanks.

After v7 we will look to upgrade the LDAP app and make it a standard in ERPNext

Hi, I try to install frappe_ldap from your repository:

bench get-app frappe_ldap https://github.com/violetasdev/frappe_ldap.git

My ERPNext setup:

Installed Apps
ERPNext: v7.0.58
Frappe Framework: v7.0.44
LDAP: v0.0.1

And now, I’m get this error log:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/frappe/frappe-bench/apps/frappe/frappe/app.py", line 55, in application
    response = frappe.handler.handle()

    __import__(name)
ImportError: No module named LDAP_settings

The login page not have a LDAP Auth option. What can I do?

Hi @Thiago_Pereira

  • First of all, the LDAP Module is working on V.6.
  • After getting the app, did you run the installation trough ERPNext installer? It will create all the dependences. Search for App Installer and try it.

If the error continues, we must watch the version, look for installed files and review if the only thing missing is the sql query to access.

I have an installation manual but it is in Spanish, let me know if it would help you.

Greetings,


#50

Tks for the answer, your installation manual can help me.


#51

@Thiago_Pereira in v7.1-beta, LDAP is a part of the core framework.


#52

@rmehta

That’s good news. Good work team.
Are we going to use OpenLDAP server http://www.openldap.org ? Or can we use it as an option?

Thanks,
Nick


#53

That’s a good news @rmehta! Thanks


#54

Where could i find the LDAP setting in v7.1-beta?
I also mentioned in this thread, LDAP login and employee database

Thanks a lot.


#55

Hi

Same as @bzero , i am a little confused as to where the LDAP application is or how it can be installed. I am running the production and also development instances / VM , but can’t see or make sense where or how to activate or install this?

I have followed some instructions on Github but these dont seem to be working

Can someone please help or provide some clear instructions on how this can be enabled? This is a great feature, but very poor communication and documentation on this topic…

Please help

Many thanks :slight_smile:


#56

Ignore my previous post

I have managed to install the app without a problem

many thanks guys, this system now totally rocks…


#57

In one of my other instances, it comes up with the below errors @saurabh6790
