This subordinate charm provides a LDAP domain backend for integrating a Keystone v3 deployment with an external LDAP based authentication system.


Use this charm with the Keystone charm, running with preferred-api-version=3:

juju deploy keystone
juju config keystone preferred-api-version=3
juju deploy keystone-ldap
juju add-relation keystone-ldap keystone

Configuration Options

LDAP configuration is provided to this charm via configuration options:

juju config keystone-ldap ldap-server="ldap://" \
            ldap-user="cn=admin,dc=test,dc=com" \
            ldap-password="password" \

By default, the name of the application ('keystone-ldap') is the name of the domain for which a domain specific configuration will be configured; you can change this using the domain-name option:

juju config keystone-ldap domain-name="myorganisationname"

The keystone charm will automatically create a domain to support the backend once deployed.

LDAP configurations can be quite complex. The ldap-config-flags configuration option provides the mechanism to pass arbitrary configuration options to keystone in order to handle any given LDAP backend's specific requirements.

For very simple LDAP configurations a string of comma delimited key=value pairs can be used:

juju config keystone-ldap \

For more complex configurations such as working with Active Directory use a configuration yaml file.

juju config keystone-ldap --file flags-config.yaml

Where flags-config.yaml has the contents similar to the following. The ldap-config-flags value uses a json like string for the key value pairs:

keystone-ldap: ldap-config-flags: "{ user_tree_dn: 'DC=dc1,DC=ad,DC=example,DC=com', user_filter: '(memberOf=CN=users-cn,OU=Groups,DC=dc1,DC=ad,DC=example,DC=com)', query_scope: sub, user_objectclass: person, user_name_attribute: sAMAccountName, user_id_attribute: sAMAccountName, user_mail_attribute: mail, user_enabled_attribute: userAccountControl, user_enabled_mask: 2, user_enabled_default: 512, user_attribute_ignore: 'password,tenant_id,tenants', user_allow_create: False, user_allow_update: False, user_allow_delete: False, }"

Note: The double quotes and braces around the whole string. And single quotes around the individual complex values.
