I have Jaspersoft Server version 5.6.0 running on a windows 2008 machine. I have followed the cookbook here
I am struggling to understand a few things.
- There is a lot of talk about applicationContxt-externalAuth-LDAP.xml this is where I have made my modifications. Do I need to update applicationContext-security.xml too some way? I would seem this was where all the LDAP/AD config was a few version ago.
- My server starts up with no issues, but I am not getting any auth from LDAP. I have created a new security group called JasperAdmins (CN=JasperAdmins,CN=Users,DC=lwr,DC=local). Where do I need to put this, I cant for the life of me find it.
Any advice would really help me out.
As of 5.1, we have modified the external authentication to keep all modifications in a single applicationContext-externalAuth-xxx file. Migrating your old files instead of using the new file might work, but is definitely deprecated.
This is not going to be perfect, but maybe I can point in a direction to look. I think you want to configure this bean:
If you want to assign permissions to the JasperAdmins, you should map the roles in your LDAP to roles in JRS. See the "Mapping Roles to System Roles" section for more information.
