I have installed GitLab Omnibus Community Edition 8.0.2 for evaluation purpose. I am trying to connect Gitlab (Linux AMI on AWS) with our on-premise LDAP server running on Win 2008 R2. However, i am unable to do so. I am getting following error (Could not authorize you from Ldapmain because “Invalid credentials”):
Here’s the config i’m using for LDAP in gitlab.rb:
gitlab_rails['ldap_enabled'] = true gitlab_rails['ldap_servers'] = YAML.load <<-'EOS' # remember to close this block with 'EOS' below main: # 'main' is the GitLab 'provider ID' of this LDAP server label: 'LDAP' host: 'XX.YYY.Z.XX' port: 389 uid: 'sAMAccountName' method: 'plain' # "tls" or "ssl" or "plain" bind_dn: 'CN=git lab,OU=users,OU=Service Accounts,OU=corp,OU=India,OU=Users,OU=UserId&Rooms,DC=india,DC=local' password: 'pwd1234' active_directory: true allow_username_or_email_login: true base: 'CN=git lab,OU=users,OU=Service Accounts,OU=corp,OU=India,OU=Users,OU=UserId&Rooms,DC=india,DC=local' user_filter: '' EOS
There are two users: gitlab (newly created AD user) and john.doe (old AD user)
Both users are able to query all AD users using ldapsearch command but when i use their respective details (one at a time) in gitlab.rb and run
gitlab-rake gitlab:ldap:check command, it displays info about that particular user only and not all users.
gitlab-rake gitlab:ldap:check was displaying first 100 results from AD when my credential (john.doe) was configured in gitlab.rb file. Since this was my personal credential, i asked my IT team to create a new AD user (gitlab) for GitLab. After i configured new user (gitlab) in gitlab.rb file and ran
gitlab-rake gitlab:ldap:check, it only displayed that particular user’s record. I thought this might be due to some permission issue for the newly-created user so i restored my personal credentials in gitlab.rb. Surprisingly, now when i run
gitlab-rake gitlab:ldap:check, i get only one record for my user instead of 100 records that i was getting earlier. This is really weird! I think, somehow, GitLab is “forgetting” previous details.
Any help will really be appreciated.
