    Default SugarCRM LDAP integration

    Has someone sucessfully integrated SugarCRM 4.5 and the included LDAP module with Zimbra? I would like to be able to use the Zimbra LDAP store for authentication and searching of users.

    Basically i need to know what to put for the Bind and Login Attributes. All of the combinations I have tried don't seem to work.

    Thanks

    Robert

    This worked great for me, but it doesn't seem to work for zimbra 6, has anyone else tried it?

    Default Buggy LDAP?

    Something seems wrong with the LDAP in zimbra 6.

    I my server, the hierarchy starts with an blank/null node
    server
    <null>
    com
    ...

    Is this the way it should be? Zimbra works fine but I could find no way to connect to it from the intranet I am building with the code described in this page.

    If anyone can find a reason why, please share it with us.

    Thanks

    Adrien

    I have it working in zimbra 6 now. Besides the settings I quoted in a previous message, for sugar 5.2 also fill in the Auth user field and password...

    uid=admin, ou=people, dc=example, dc=com

    In this case example.com is the name of the primary domain used with zimbra.

    Hope this helps

    Default SugarCRM 6 Zimbra 6 LDAP

    Ok, guys, this is just an update to this thread as it seems to be at the top of google while I was trying to get my system to work.

    Current Zimbra - ZNE 6.0.6
    Sugar CRM Community - 6.0.0

    sugar config -
    (log in as an admin, go to admin link at top, password management)

    Enable LDAP Authentication Check

    Server (fqdn of server such as zimbra.example.com)

    Port number 389

    User DN (I have over 30 domains on Zimbra) dc=example,dc=com
    (this is set so they only use one domain for sugar. Leave blank if they can use any domain)

    Bind Attribute dn

    Login Attribute uid

    Group Membership is cleared

    Authentication is checked

    Username (yours should be same) uid=zimbra,cn=admins,cn=zimbra

    password (your ldap password. I had to find mine) to find ldap password look here: [SOLVED] View Ldap Password

    Auto Create Users checked.

    Now my users in a single domain on zimbra can authenticate in sugarcrm as username (without the @example.com) and their password on zimbra.

    Hello to all,
    Bringing this thread back to life just to report how I managed to integrate Zimbra 8 and SugarCRM 6, in case someone else search for it )

    1. Zimbra Open Source 8.0.6_GA_5922.FOSS
    2. SugarCRM Community 6.5.16

    I wanted to allow LDAP auth only to one Zimbra domain, that's why I configured the "User DN" with example.com. I did try leaving the UserDN empty (as Arglex1 suggested), but that was returning "You must enter valid u/p" err at SugarCE login form.

    Server: <zimbra server host>
    Port: 389
    User DN: ou=people,dc=example,dc=com
    Bind Attribute: dn
    Login Attribute: uid
    Authentication: yes
    Auth username: uid=zimbra,cn=admins,cn=zimbra
    Auth password: <@zimbra server: su - zimbra; zmlocalconfig -s | grep zimbra_ldap_password>
    Auth-create users: yes

    Back on the SugarCE server, I can now login with:
    Username: <zimbra_user_without_@example.com>
    Password: ***

    Regards.
