Nuxeo + Jasig CAS
Hello! I am deploying Nuxeo for the first time and also this is first time I am setting up SSO which is jasig CAS server. I have downloaded the plugin, configured the descriptor and auth chain. Now is the question: should the LDAP or SQL directory be configured in the Nuxeo, to allow the system check the user permissions. I.e.: how can I login with the admin credentials if I am constantly redirected to CAS page?
Yes if you are using CAS/LDAP to handle authentication your need to configure Nuxeo to bind the same LDAP directory to provision user accounts.
In order to use an LDAP account to log in as an administrator, you will need to configure this extension point:
<extension target="org.nuxeo.ecm.platform.usermanager.UserService" point="userManager"> <userManager> <!-- ldap administrator uid --> <defaultAdministratorId>12345</defaultAdministratorId> <!-- admin group --> <administratorsGroup>ecm-admin</administratorsGroup> <defaultGroup>members</defaultGroup> </userManager> </extension>
