LDAP and ObjectDB

#1

Hello,

Is there any advantage in using LDAP with ObjectDB?

I notice that I would still have to query the config for the credential, as well as query LDAP, a doubling of the work.

 

Thanks

Most applications manage users and permissions in the database but not in the configuration file.

You can use one shared user in objectdb.conf for the entire application and manage your application users and permissions using your own persistent objects in the database.

The purpose of the user permissions in the configuration is mainly for managing different users that use different databases and applications (e.g. one installation of ObjectDB server that serves many students in a University, each with his or her own application and databases) and not for managing users and permissions inside the application.

Could you please elaborate with short snippets of code please?

How do I link my objects in the db with the permissions?

 

Thanks
