Find LDAP consumer Ansible script here

Commons cloud LDAP service.

FKI LDAP Client and Onboarding installation

We use LDAP to unify user accounts across different services. One user, one password for all!


Install openLDAP server

apt-get install slapd ldap-utils

Enter Admin password: ****
This will be the password for cn=admin,cn=config

Enter domain:
Create base DN dc=example,dc=com

Enter admin password: ****
This will be the password for cn=admin,dc=example,dc=com

Database type: mdb

Basic config

Edit /etc/default/slapd
We will use ldap on localhost, ldapi on localhost, and ldaps for connections from the outside.

SLAPD_SERVICES="ldap:/// ldaps:/// ldapi:///"

Find openldap config files here /etc/ldap/slapd.d

Post install config

We import configuration directly into the DIT (Directory Information Tree) using the olc (Online configuration) syntax organized in files. So, let's create a directory to store those files

mkdir /etc/ldap/ldif

See your config!

ldapsearch -LLL -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -b olcDatabase={1}mdb,cn=config
slapdcat -b cn=config

unique uid and mail attributes

We want to avoid duplicate user ids. LDAP will accept uid=david,ou=group1 and uid=david,ou=group2 because they represent two different entries in the DIT. However, this may lead to uid confusion. We also wish the mail attribute to be unique for similar reasons.

Edit /etc/ldap/ldif/unique.ldif
We make uid and mail attributes unique across the dc=example,dc=com tree

# import the unique module library
dn: cn=module{1},cn=config
cn: module{1}
objectClass: olcModuleList
olcModuleLoad: unique
olcModulePath: /usr/lib/ldap

# define the module overlay
dn: olcOverlay={0}unique,olcDatabase={1}mdb,cn=config
objectClass: olcConfig
objectClass: olcOverlayConfig
objectClass: olcUniqueConfig
olcOverlay: {0}unique
olcUniqueBase: dc=example,dc=com
olcUniqueAttribute: uid
olcUniqueAttribute: mail

And now we import the config

ldapadd  -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -f /etc/ldap/ldif/unique.ldif

group membership and integrity

We want to create groups of users to make permission assignment easier.
Edit /etc/ldap/ldif/memberof.ldif

# import the memberof module library
dn: cn=module{2},cn=config
cn: module{2}
objectClass: olcModuleList
olcModuleLoad: memberof
olcModulePath: /usr/lib/ldap

# configure the overlay
dn: olcOverlay={1}memberof,olcDatabase={1}mdb,cn=config
objectClass: olcConfig
objectClass: olcMemberOf
objectClass: olcOverlayConfig
objectClass: top
olcOverlay: {1}memberof
olcMemberOfDangling: ignore
olcMemberOfRefInt: TRUE
olcMemberOfGroupOC: groupOfNames
olcMemberOfMemberAD: member
olcMemberOfMemberOfAD: memberOf

And now we import the config

ldapadd  -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -f /etc/ldap/ldif/memberof.ldif

What happens with we add a user's DN to a group, and then at some later date delete that user? Well, the deleted user's DN remains as a member of the group. That's not good. We want some consistency.
First we import the library into cn=module{2},cn=config, the same DN we use for the memberof module
Edit /etc/ldap/ldif/refint-1.ldif

# add the refint module to the existing cn=module{2},cn=config entry
dn: cn=module{2},cn=config
changetype: modify
add: olcModuleLoad
olcModuleLoad: refint

And now we import the modification

ldapmodify  -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -f /etc/ldap/ldif/refint-1.ldif

Then we define the overlay configuration
Edit /etc/ldap/ldif/refint-2.ldif

# configure the refint overylay
dn: olcOverlay={2}refint,olcDatabase={1}mdb,cn=config
objectClass: olcConfig
objectClass: olcOverlayConfig
objectClass: olcRefintConfig
objectClass: top
olcOverlay: {2}refint
olcRefintAttribute: memberof member manager owner

And import the configuration

ldapadd  -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -f /etc/ldap/ldif/refint-2.ldif
Add / Delete members from a group

Edit add_member.ldif

dn: cn=group_name,dc=commonscloud,dc=coop
changetype: modify
delete: member
member: uid=a_user,ou=users,dc=commonscloud,dc=coop
ldapmodify -x -W -D "uid=my-user,dc=commonscloud,dc=coop" -f ./member_test.ldif
