[rabbitmq-discuss] rabbit_auth_backend_ldap connect failed

Thank you again.

I think I can't use the LDAP Plugin then. I need to do a search in the LDAP to find the user, I can't authenticate the user directly in the LDAP. This is no good news for me.

I have another problem creating a new user by the HTTP API, but I'll open a new question.

Thank you very much!

 From http://www.rabbitmq.com/ldap.html:

"For authentication this plugin binds to the LDAP server as the user it is trying to authenticate. This option controls how to bind for authorisation queries, and to retrieve the details of a user who is logging in without presenting a password (e.g. SASL EXTERNAL)."

So other_bind is only used after authenticating the user. Looking at the documentation for mod_auth_ldap it looks like the Apache module does a search using the configured username before attempting to bind using the provided username. The RabbitMQ plugin doesn't do that.

See: http://www.rabbitmq.com/validated-user-id.html
