Class LdapUserDetailsManager

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    UserDetailsService, UserDetailsManager

    public class LdapUserDetailsManager
    extends java.lang.Object
    implements UserDetailsManager
    An Ldap implementation of UserDetailsManager.

    It is designed around a standard setup where users and groups/roles are stored under separate contexts, defined by the "userDnBase" and "groupSearchBase" properties respectively.

    In this case, LDAP is being used purely to retrieve information and this class can be used in place of any other UserDetailsService for authentication. Authentication isn't performed directly against the directory, unlike with the LDAP authentication provider setup.

      • loadUserByUsername

        public UserDetails loadUserByUsername​(java.lang.String username)
        Description copied from interface: UserDetailsService
        Locates the user based on the username. In the actual implementation, the search may possibly be case sensitive, or case insensitive depending on how the implementation instance is configured. In this case, the UserDetails object that comes back may have a username that is of a different case than what was actually requested..
        Specified by:
        loadUserByUsername in interface UserDetailsService
        username - the username identifying the user whose data is required.
        a fully populated user record (never null)
      • changePassword

        public void changePassword​(java.lang.String oldPassword,
                                   java.lang.String newPassword)
        Changes the password for the current user. The username is obtained from the security context. There are two supported strategies for modifying the user's password depending on the capabilities of the corresponding LDAP server.

        Configured one way, this method will modify the user's password via the LDAP Password Modify Extended Operation . See setUsePasswordModifyExtensionOperation(boolean) for details.

        By default, though, if the old password is supplied, the update will be made by rebinding as the user, thus modifying the password using the user's permissions. If oldPassword is null, the update will be attempted using a standard read/write context supplied by the context source.

        Specified by:
        changePassword in interface UserDetailsManager
        oldPassword - the old password
        newPassword - the new value of the password.
      • deleteUser

        public void deleteUser​(java.lang.String username)
        Description copied from interface: UserDetailsManager
        Remove the user with the given login name from the system.

      • userExists

        public boolean userExists​(java.lang.String username)
        Description copied from interface: UserDetailsManager
        Check if a user with the supplied login name exists in the system.

        Creates a DN from a group name.
        group - the name of the group
        the DN of the corresponding group, including the groupSearchBase
      • copyToContext

                                      java.util.Collection<? extends GrantedAuthority> authorities)
      • removeAuthorities

        protected void removeAuthorities​(org.springframework.ldap.core.DistinguishedName userDn,
                                         java.util.Collection<? extends GrantedAuthority> authorities)
      • setPasswordAttributeName

      • setAttributesToRetrieve

        public void setAttributesToRetrieve​(java.lang.String[] attributesToRetrieve)
      • setGroupMemberAttributeName

        public void setGroupMemberAttributeName​(java.lang.String groupMemberAttributeName)
        Sets the name of the multi-valued attribute which holds the DNs of users who are members of a group.

        Usually this will be uniquemember (the default value) or member.

        groupMemberAttributeName - the name of the attribute used to store group members.
      • setRoleMapper

        public void setRoleMapper​(org.springframework.ldap.core.AttributesMapper roleMapper)
      • setUsePasswordModifyExtensionOperation

        public void setUsePasswordModifyExtensionOperation​(boolean usePasswordModifyExtensionOperation)
        Sets the method by which a user's password gets modified. If set to true, then changePassword(java.lang.String, java.lang.String) will modify the user's password by way of the Password Modify Extension Operation. If set to false, then changePassword(java.lang.String, java.lang.String) will modify the user's password by directly modifying attributes on the corresponding entry. Before using this setting, ensure that the corresponding LDAP server supports this extended operation. By default, usePasswordModifyExtensionOperation is false.
