User lookup using LDAP and internal database

Hi

Would it be at all possible to setup OpenFire in a way that it will look up users in active directory AND the internal database as well?

Thank you in advance.

Regards,

Andrew

this is not possible

Hi

Thank you for replying.

As well as retrieving users from ActiveDirectory via LDAP, I am needing to find a way of adding as many users as I like to the open fire server without adding them to ActiveDirectory, is this at all possible?

Regards,

Andrew

it looks like it may be possible using HybridAuthProvider and/or HybridUserProvider

Hi

how would I go about installing both HybridAuthProvider and HybridUserProvider?

I haven’t tested this, but something like this might work . I looked into doing this a while ago, and never got around to testing it.

Change

provider.auth.className = org.jivesoftware.openfire.auth.HybridAuthProvider
provider.user.className = org.jivesoftware.openfire.user.HybridUserProvider

Add

hybridAuthProvider.primaryProvider = org.jivesoftware.openfire.auth.DefaultAuthProvider
hybridAuthProvider.secondaryProvider = org.jivesoftware.openfire.ldap.LdapAuthProvider

HybridUserProvider.primaryProvider = org.jivesoftware.openfire.user.DefaultUserProvider

HybridUserProvider.secondaryProvider = org.jivesoftware.openfire.ldap.LdapUserProvider
