ldap auth for request-tracker3.6 on ubuntu hardy

A while back I posted about ‘ldap auth for request-tracker3.6 on debian etch‘. I upgraded the old server from debian etch to ubuntu hardy recently, here is an update:

I’ve recently rebuilt request-tracker and there is a newer method for handling LDAP using ExternalAuth. You can find it on CPAN. I created a deb for it:

# get librt-extension-commandbymail for some dependencies
wget http://mjj29.matthew.ath.cx/debian-upload/librt-extension-commandbymail-perl/librt-extension-commandbymail-perl_0.05-1.dsc
wget http://mjj29.matthew.ath.cx/debian-upload/librt-extension-commandbymail-perl/librt-extension-commandbymail-perl_0.05.orig.tar.gz
wget http://mjj29.matthew.ath.cx/debian-upload/librt-extension-commandbymail-perl/librt-extension-commandbymail-perl_0.05-1.diff.gz
dpkg-source -x librt-extension-commandbymail-perl_0.05-1.dsc
wget http://www.cpan.org/authors/id/Z/ZO/ZORDRAK/RT-Authen-ExternalAuth-0.05.tar.gz
tar -xvzf RT-Authen-ExternalAuth-0.05.tar.gz
dh-make-perl RT-Authen-ExternalAuth-0.05
cp librt-extension-commandbymail-perl-0.05/debian/RT.pm RT-Authen-ExternalAuth-0.05/debian/
# add -Idebian to RT-Authen-ExternalAuth-0.05/debian/rules
# $(PERL) -Idebian Makefile.PL INSTALLDIRS=vendor \
cd RT-Authen-ExternalAuth-0.05/
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot

The take the examples (RT-Authen-ExternalAuth-0.05/etc/RT_SiteConfig.pm) and add them to your RT_SiteConfig.pm like:

Set($ExternalAuthPriority, [ ‘My_LDAP’
Set($ExternalInfoPriority, [ ‘My_LDAP’
Set($ExternalServiceUsesSSLorTLS, 0);
Set($AutoCreateNonExternalUsers, 0);
Set($ExternalSettings, { # AN EXAMPLE DB SERVICE
