has anyway tried the OpenAM (formerly OpenSSO) stack from ForgeRock for LDAP integration?

I am hoping to find a cloud or hosted LDAP solution that the Drupal module can work with

want to try to integrate Moodle to that OpenAM too...



the AMI is only available in Ireland AWS

More correctly. It looks like http://opendj.forgerock.org is the ldap project

For anyone in the Bay Area, there is a OpenIDM conference hosted by Forgerock Thursday 6th Dec


With the upcoming release of OpenIDM 2.1 Xpress, we're calling on customers, partners, friends and allies, those with ideas and those keen on having a say in the OpenIDM community, to come for a day of technical discussions, and to share best practices, use cases, and new requirements.
Lunch and beer will be served.
The product and the community around OpenIDM have matured a lot since the project began, and now have a loyal install base around the globe. This is a great venue to get together and meet with ForgeRock Product Management and customers using OpenIDM as well as specialist partners and fans!

Love the openidm model. However I can help the ldap project integrate with it, let me know. I've always wanted to set up a live reference ldap in a variety of ldap flavors for testing of this project and to give users a reference to debug their ldaps. Perhaps there is interest within openidm to have one for similar use cases. Not sure which Bay you're referreing to, but I suspect its far from the middle of Illinois.

hi john

San Francisco Bay Area :?

um, could I take this idea to the Summit on Thursday ?

could you write a paragraph about the reference ldap idea using openidm ? I will try to create, gather and direct some interest at the summit to this module and perhaps a proposal or concept from you?

btw, I see in the event details above UC Berkeley is using OpenIDM, which is interesting from a Drupal perspective, as the entire campus did a deal with Pantheon for Panopoly based distro (OpenAcademy or some variant as the published one seems like it needs an update)

personally, I want a solid open IDM solution to tie Drupal site networks on BOA Aegir and misc web apps like good old Wordpress, Moodle, etc etc

what do you think? what would you need from Forgerock / OpenIDM to create a reference LDAP for the Drupal module? an Amazon AMI ? a VirtualBox image?

I'm not so much interested in a space to create it, but someone else to create and host it. It may be handy for openIDMs work also. I started a new issue for it #1856688: Reference LDAP Implementations for testing, user debugging, and documentation

Feel free to bring the idea up and pursue it. Its just something I think would be handy and I haven't found such a thing.

I may get to it someday if no one else does.

it seems like it would be something Forgerock / OpenIDM should do.

it aligns with project community and commercial interests

This is a duplicated of the issue related to a reference ldap being hosted.
