Subject RE: Active Directory Authentication
Date Wed, 27 Aug 2008 13:16:06 GMT
I am using the latest version 1.1.1 with the snapshot jar mentioned in my last posts.

it looks to me that even though LDAP has been specified for authentication on startup the
calls are being made to make sure default guest/admin are available in the jdbc backend.

Obviously this wont be the case unless you manually add them like i went through in my last

Sames goes with setting up roles, you have to click edit roles and then submit a blank page,
then re-edit before you can see anything to be set. >From memory the exception says something
about the user cant be found on the permission row which is correct until we submit the blank
role page, which ads the user row.

Same goes for trying to browse or search without logging in...

So even though there is ldap support it is evident that there are some calls which are still
dependent on the local jdbc

What is your Archiva version? 1.0?
I fixed some things about LDAP in 1.1.1
