Error configuring External Authorisation for LDAP on JasperServer 6.0

I have just upgraded from 5.6.0 to 6.0.0 and have my old favourite problem - LDAP configuration (MS AD actually).  First configured successfully under 4.5 then 4.7. I modified the 5.6.0 applicationContext-security.xml file to work in a similar manner to 4.7.  This doesn’t work with 6.0.0, so I have tried splitting the LDAP configuration using the sample_applicationContext-externalAuth-LDAP.xml file.  I get an error as follows:

 

2014-12-26 15:38:39,073 ERROR ContextLoader,Thread-1:331 - Context initialization failed

org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'proxyBasicProcessingFilter' defined in ServletContext resource [/WEB-INF/applicationContext-externalAuth-LDAP.xml]: Could not resolve matching constructor (hint: specify index/type/name arguments for simple parameters to avoid type ambiguities)

 

I’ve seen one or two other posts with similar problems, but none of the solutions resolve the problem.  I have configured the beans ldapAuthenticationProvider, userSearch, and ldapContextSource in the externalAuth file with no success.


Has anybody else experienced this problem? Or can you spot the issue in my externalAuth extract below, please?

The example proxyBasicProcessingFilter bean config provided with JS6 is broken.  Try the below, which fixed it for me:

(Of course now I need to understand why the organizationRoleMapping stuff which worked in 5.5 is now broken in 6 - sigh...)

 

 

    <bean id="proxyBasicProcessingFilter"
          class="com.jaspersoft.jasperserver.api.security.externalAuth.ExternalAuthBasicProcessingFilter">
        <property name="authenticationManager" ref="ldapAuthenticationManager"/>
        <property name="externalDataSynchronizer" ref="externalDataSynchronizer"/>
 
 
        <property name="authenticationEntryPoint">
            <ref local="basicProcessingFilterEntryPoint"/>
        </property>
    </bean>

Hi tim_12,

Thank you for that information. The fix worked perfectly. I too moved on to fixing up the LDAP role mapping that used to work. I am using AD, and didn't include the User details in master properties before the migration, so enter them manually as per p31-33 in the v6.0.1 Authentication Cookbook. After including the mappings from external role to JRS role in the externalUserSetupProcessor, the bit I found missing that completed it and got it working was in the ldapContextSource bean.  I added the following after the password property; <property name="referral" value="follow"/>

Not sure if that helps, but I'd be happy to cast an eye over things if you like.

Once again, thanks for your help.

1 Answer:

Note that unless you specifically use external authentication to authenticate users via rest or webservices, proxyBasicProcessingFilter can me completely removed from the sample file.  As a result of this, delegatingPreAuthenticatedFilter in applicationContext-security-web.xml will fall back on the non-external basicProcessingFilter behaviour.

 

Sample file is provided just as that.  It includes more scenarios than you might need.

Hi dlitvak,

Thank you for the explanation. That makes sense to me now. One or two of our people use the Report Studio tool remotely, which I think authenticates using REST under these circumstances. So am I correct in thinking that I should include the proxyBasicProcessingFilter.
