Interesting. Not sure how we can replicate this problem.

Does Gluu fully support active directory as backend or is it only suited with non-microsoft based LDAP? I am almost done with the evaluation part but unfortunately stuck with few things like this one that i mentioned and other one when the user is created in active directory with a temp password and then when they login they are then supposed to change the password. For the latter part you already responded that Gluu will not add that feature but this one i need to sort out else it wont check all of my requirements to recommend this for production setup.

Hi, Yunus. Gluu can use any LDAP server as backend. LDAP protocol is an industry standard, so anything that adhere to it will do. But Gluu Server doesn't support any AD's proprietary interfaces, so there is no full integration into AD environment. It just can pull users from AD and verify their credentials (with LDAP bind), that's it. Regarding the original issue, just an idea: are you sure you use AD for authentication in Gluu? Basically, you need to configure two things in Gluu: Cache Refresh to pull in users from AD, and add your AD server at Manage Authentication page in web UI so it could be used for authentication as well. Is that what you do? Could you provide screenshots of your CR and Manage Authentication UI pages with all settings visible?

Hi Mike, Yes thats what i have done by following the documentation and youtube videos and its connected well to our lab active directory and can pull the records and the authentication is working perfectly. This issue i just resolved by turning on "Pre-authorization" setting under the OIDC that netscaler is using. So one less thing to worry about. I am only stuck with the following: -> When a user's account is locked in AD then we get failed authentication message and i want to convert that to actual error which is "user account is locked" -> when a user's account is disabled then its the same behavior -> when a user's account is created with a temp password and the option "user must change their password at next logon" is selected then user cannot login. Basically i want it to accept the password and then let user change the password. Its fine if we need to redirect to another URL. I believe for all the above i need to use a custom script. And for that script to work i need to ensure that userAccountControl attribute from active directory is part of the cache refresh. I am still trying to see how to do that in opendj but once that attribute is propagated to Gluu then maybe i need to figureout how to use that in custom script. I am not familiar with python/jython so will do some research and see if i can make it work.

Yes, I think you're on exactly the right track. If you can manipulate the data correctly in the AD LDAP, I think it will work out. This would be a cool script. I'm assigning Madhu, one of our engineers to help you if you have any questions about scripting. It is a pain in the neck... if you can get remote debugging enabled from Eclipse, that helps a lot. Also, there are many script examples [in Github]( I would check out the multi-ldap script, password update, and register scripts.

Thanks Mike, I was also looking at one of the sample script in Github. At the moment i am trying to understand the code.

If you need help with this, we can introduce you to one of Gluu's partners. These scripts can be tricky to write.
