JTS / RTC - is it possible to run BOTH Tomcat users and LDAP users?


Brian Kinney (111) | asked Oct 27 '17, 11:51 a.m.

Currently only local users, but need to convert over to LDAP, and I may need to keep a few local user identities.

The instructions I've found are rather vague at best, and assume that all users are converted over.

https://jazz.net/forum/questions/213072/how-can-i-migrate-users-from-tomcat-usersxml-to-was-ldap-ms-ad 

On top of that, I have some of these users already in my LDAP, and I don't want to break them.

So,

1) Can you run with both local and LDAP users at the same time?

2) When I run jts/setup to configure the LDAP for JTS, will it disable the local user authentication?

3) Are there any directions out there for Configuring Tomcat to use MS AD as a user registry?

This is really an Apache/Tomcat question, I think.

By default, it is only possible to use either LDAP or local configuration with Tomcat as far as I can tell. I know that WAS and WAS Liberty Profile support a federated relm that basically looks at a local and an LDAP based user management. I can't tell if Tomcat can be configured to do that. Your best chance is to ask in forums that are more specialized on Apache.
