I wrote a workaround that automatically adds the user to the database users, after the login (obviously after verifying that the LDAP accepts the login).

If you are interested i can share the code.

Edit the file lib.user.php into the folder lib:

Replace the rows 231-235 with this code:

Code: Select all

if( $user_info === false ){
			
			if(Get::sett('ldap_used') == 'on') {
				
				$ldap_conn = @ldap_connect( Get::sett('ldap_server'), Get::sett('ldap_port', '389'));
				$ldap_user = ereg_replace( '\$user', $login, Get::sett('ldap_user_string') );
				if(ldap_bind($ldap_conn, $ldap_user, $password))
				{
					ldap_close($ldap_conn);
					$logldap = "/".$login;
					list($userid) = sql_fetch_row(sql_query("SELECT userid FROM core_user WHERE userid='$logldap'"));
					if($userid == ""){
						$date = date("Y-m-d H:i:s");
						list($idstMember) = sql_fetch_row(sql_query("SELECT max(idst)+1 FROM core_st"));
						sql_query("INSERT INTO core_user (idst, userid, valid, register_date) VALUES ($idstMember,'$logldap',1,'$date')");
						sql_query("INSERT INTO core_st (idst) VALUES ('$idstMember')"); 
						sql_query("INSERT INTO core_group_members (idst, idstMember) VALUES (1,'$idstMember')"); 
					}
				}
				else{
					  return $ret_value;
				}
			}	
			else{
				return $ret_value;
			} 
		}
    
		if( $user_info[ACL_INFO_VALID] != '1' && Get::sett('ldap_used') == 'off'){
			  return $ret_value;
		}
enjoy ;)

Thank for sharing your work.

We will integrate this in forma.lms 2.x .
I hope in the 2.0, but we are in the final beta status and soon we will enter in the Release canditate status, so I'm not sure that we can made the change. For sure te code will be integrated in the 2.1
