Push users to LDAP

This module was written in order to use Odoo as a frontend for creating LDAP entries by creating user records. Updates to the user record will be propagated to the linked LDAP entry afterwards.

When users change their passwords, they will be updated in the LDAP directory too.


On the LDAP parameters of your company, check Create ldap entry in order to activate this functionality. Be sure to configure a bind DN that has appropriate permissions to create and modify entries.

Fill in the object classes newly created entries should contain, separated by colons. Those classes will determine which mappings from Odoo fields to LDAP attributes you need. This is highly dependent on your LDAP setup.

For a standard slapd setup, you might want to use object classes inetOrgPerson,shadowAccount and the following mapping:

Odoo field LDAP attribute DN
Login userid X
Name cn  
Name sn  

Matching is done by the new field ldap_entry_dn, so after installing this module, you'll probably want to set this field. The module will write it when a user logs in via Odoo.


When you create or update users, their corresponding LDAP entries will be updated too.

When creating users, there's a checkbox 'LDAP user' which allows you to push the new user to your LDAP directory. This of course only works if you have field mappings for all mandatory fields in your schema.
