Description Barak 2014-04-02 20:38:02 UTC
Description of problem:

Following BZ1032682 -
We should include a generic LDAP directory provider replacing the current ldap provider.
For this provider should be able to:
- configure the queries and the returned attribute via a configuration file, in order to support adding future ldap vendors via configuration, and not via code.
- to be able to build such a provider externally (outside of the engine code)
- such a generic provider should come with configuration templates for all 
  currently supported legacy providers (AD, IPA, RHDS, openLDAP ...)

Comment 1 Ondra Machacek 2014-05-19 09:57:05 UTC
is there any documentation/feature_page how to configure own ldap provider?
