Hello,
I have read that we can configure RTC with Websphere to use authentication with LDAP and Websphere (https://jazz.net/library/article/604)
I have read that this configuration was impossible on tomcat with RTC v3 (https://jazz.net/forum/questions/52478/ldap-realm-federation-and-tomcat)
Is it possible with the new versions (v4.0.6. or v5.0.2. or v6.0.1) to configure tomcat to use a mix authentication ?
Is it exist a documentation ?
Thanks for your help

Mathieu

Please have a look at https://jazz.net/library/article/457 I don't know if it works with all versions, however the comments indicate it works with 3.x and there was a patch for 2.x. You can try it on a test system in your version.

I just realized that this is only for group mapping to users. sorry.

Thanks Ralph.
So I conclude that it's impossible ?

I would conclude there is no description how to. If you know Tomcat real good, there might be ways, but I think that your statement is probably closer to the truth.

Configuring Tomcat with LDAPLocalGroupRealm is part of the documentation so it should work with all the latest versions.  See http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSYMRC_6.0.0/com.ibm.jazz.install.doc/topics/t_config_ldaplicalgroup.html

I would also say you can explore the new Jazz Authentication Server option available with v6.0.

The first link don't asked to my question because it's only for group.
But the second link with "Jazz Authentication Server" is clearly the good solution on version 6
Thanks
