LDAP AuthenticationPermanent link for this heading

In addition to Kerberos, the Fabasoft Folio Web Management also supports authentication based on LDAP via Pluggable Authentication Modules for Linux (PAM).

To enable PAM authentication, the following command must be executed:

echo -n "-k" > /var/opt/fabasoft/instances/WebManagement/env/CommandLine

The Fabasoft Folio Web Management Service has to be restarted for the modification to take effect.

Additionally, PAM must be configured according to your LDAP infrastructure. The PAM configuration can be found in /etc/pam.d. The directory contains a single file per service, which is typically a familiar name corresponding to an application. For each service, the file /etc/pam.d/<service> contains its configuration. In case of the Fabasoft Folio Web Management, the service name is "fscwmc". Consequently, the file /etc/pam.d/fscwmc must be created or modified to complete the authentication configuration for LDAP.
