Description

Hi,

We've been using the LDAP to authenticate our users ever since we created our site a couple years ago. We've run into a few road bumps along they way, but this time I can't seem to figure out the issue that is occurring with the LDAP. The main issue that I am seeing here is that the LDAP doesn't appear to be syncing with our groups.

If I attempt a log in on my normal admin account, it appears to allow me to log in as if it's recognizing that I am a user, but while it logs me in, the groups aren't being synced. This results in an error that says "You do not have permission to view this page." So I logout of that account and log back in with the default admin account (which seems to be the only account still working without the LDAP group sync). When I check the Users list, I can see that even my normal admin account has been completely removed from the groups I previously belonged to before my login attempt.

Therefore, this leads me to believe that the issue is with the ldap_sync_group functions somewhere inside the lib/userslib.php file. I've tried a couple of workarounds, but to no avail. Has anyone experience anything like this?

Please help, as this is completely breaking my Tiki installation!

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
