Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

Installs and configures the OpenDJ Rest2Ldap Gateway in Tomcat

Supported Platforms

  • Ubuntu
    • 14.04

This is a fairly simple cookbook so it will likely work on other Ubuntu versions
as well as RHEL/CentOS platforms.

This allows you to to have a REST interface to an LDAP Directory server. Currently
tested with the following.

  • OpenDJ
  • Sun One Directory Server

Given the right configuration it should work with just about any directory server
including Active Directory.

Tunable Attributes

All tunable attributes are in the rest2ldap hierarchy.

Key Type Description Default
name String Name of the WAR file the cookbook will generate rest2ldap
version String Rest2Ldap version to download 2.6.9
url String Download URL Calculated
ldap_host String LDAP Host ''
ldap_port Numeric LDAP Port 389
ldap_binddn String LDAP Bind DN 'cn=Directory Manager'
ldap_bindpw String LDAP Bind Password empty

ldap_searchscope String LDAP Search Scope 'sub'
ldap_searchfilter String LDAP Search Filter '(&(objectClass=person)(uid=%s))'

Important Note

The mappings look relatively complicated upon first inspection. The OpenDJ Admin
Guide has an appendix with some pretty good documentation.
