LDAP integration in XOOPS 2.1

Hello,

As far as I understand from roadmap discussions, LDAP will be included with 2.1 version of XOOPS. I've tried to contact to core team members several times with PM, but I got no responce so I'm tring to communicate with forum :)

I think it is a good idea to discuss how LDAP integration or LDAP support will be in core before coding. So there should be a user group, beta test group and development group. I can join all of three teams if desired. But I want to be sure LDAP will be in core with 2.1 version. Because when we talked about version 2.0, it was said LDAP will be in core with version 2.0, but there were no progress. And also I wrote a hack for XOOPS version 1.3.4. Look at this thread. But this hack remained only for version 1.3.4.

I'm sure XOOPS will be more powerful and more widely used with LDAP integration.

Best regards
Hirac

Re: LDAP integration in XOOPS 2.1

From the roadmap discussion thread you see that's it's requested. It's up to the devs to see if and how it will be integrated. The roadmap discussion is just that, a discussion, not the actual roadmap itself.

But, being a core team member not PM-ed by you, I'll see why you haven't been contacted. Who did you PM? Kazu is the Core Development Team leader, so he's the one you should ask.

Re: LDAP integration in XOOPS 2.1

To join to core team for LDAP, I PM-ed to onokazu. About LDAP developments, I PM-ed to you.

I want to see LDAP in core of 2.1, because everytime I try to use XOOPS as a CMS solution in my company, it is refused because of lack of LDAP support. But I'm sure XOOPS is better than other portal/CMS solutions used in my company. But the others are using because they have LDAP support.

Re: LDAP integration in XOOPS 2.1

Our company's intranet and portal platform is Vignette Story Server, but I think XOOPS is better on most cases, only workflow, logging mechanisms and LDAP integration are better than XOOPS. But Vignette is very expensive product, XOOPS is free.

This is something I'm very interested in also!

Re: LDAP integration in XOOPS 2.1

So one XOOPS core team member and one XOOPS friend are interesting in LDAP. I guess this time LDAP is seriously coming to XOOPS. :)

Re: LDAP integration in XOOPS 2.1

hey dude,

Be a "Friend of XOOPS" then you would get one XOOPS core team member and TWO XOOPS friends who are interesting in LDAP. LDAP is surely coming to XOOPS.

Re: LDAP integration in XOOPS 2.1

I also think that the LDAP implementation will determine the success of a GPL CMS like XOOPS. Currently the system is very nice, but it cannot be implemented in our organization, as we don't want to have a separate authentication system (yet another directory to maintain !!).
With LDAP integration, I really think intranet usage of XOOPS will become widely used.
