How to integrate GLPI in eGroupware in order to avoid a double identification when an external source of authentification is used Active Directory?

These data are valid for GLPI 0.68.3 and eGroupware 1.2.104

  • To copy file GLPI in the repository”… htdocs/egroupware/”
  • To create the file as follows”… htdocs/egroupware/glpi/setup/”:
* eGroupWare - glpi                                                        *

  • To create the file if required”… htdocs/egroupware/glpi/templates/default/images/navbar.png” (it is the image which will appear in the menu of the eGroupWare applications)
  • To add application GLPI (State: Activated - Window popup) and to give the rights to the users in eGroupWare
  • Modification of the index.php of GLPI (sending of the form automatically with the velaur “last_loginid” for the login):
  [[ | echo]] “< div id=' boxlogin'>”;
  echo “<form action=' login.php' name=' connexion' method=' post'>”;
  // authentification CASE
  echo “<div class=' row'><span class=' label'><label>”. $lang [“login”] [6].” :  </label></span><span class=' formw'> <input type=' text' name=' login_name' id=' login_name' value=' “. $_REQUEST [“last_loginid”]. ” “size=' 15”/></span></div>”;
   echo “<div class=' row'><span class=' label'><label>”. $lang [“login”] [7].” : </label></span><span class=' formw'><input type=' password' name=' login_password' id=' login_password' value=' bidon' size=' 15 '/> </span></div> ";
   echo “</fieldset>”;
  echo “<p ><span> <input type=' submit' name=' submit' value='”. $lang [“short props”] [2]. ” “class=' submit”/></span></p>”;
  echo “</form>”;
   echo “<script type=' text/javascript'>  N”;
  echo “ (); ”;
  echo “</script>  N”;
  • Modification of the login.php of GLPI (one is unaware of the test of authentification “connection_ldap_active_directory”):
      // Fifth try Activates directory LDAP in depth search
      // we check all the auth sources in turn…
      // First, we get the DNN and then, we try to log in
      yew (! $auth_succeded&&! empty ($cfg_glpi [“ldap_host”])) {
          //echo “AD”;
          $found_dn=$identificat->ldap_get_dn_active_directory ($cfg_glpi [“ldap_host”], $cfg_glpi [“ldap_basedn”], $_POST [“login_name”], $cfg_glpi [“ldap_rootdn”], $cfg_glpi [“ldap_pass”], $cfg_glpi [“ldap_port”]);
          //echo $found_dn. “---”;
          yew ($found_dn! =false&&! empty ($_POST [“login_password”])){ 
              // $auth_succeded = $identificat->connection_ldap_active_directory ($cfg_glpi [“ldap_host”], $found_dn, $_POST [“login_name”], $_POST [“login_password”], $cfg_glpi [“ldap_condition”], $cfg_glpi [“ldap_port”]);
              yew ($auth_succeded) {
                  $user_present = $identificat->user->getFromDBbyName ($_POST [“login_name”]);
                  $identificat->user->getFromLDAP_active_directory ($cfg_glpi [“ldap_host”], $cfg_glpi [“ldap_port”], $found_dn, $cfg_glpi [“ldap_rootdn”], $cfg_glpi [“ldap_pass”], $cfg_glpi [“ldap_fields”], $_POST [“login_name”], $cfg_glpi [“ldap_condition”]);
  • Modification of the logout.php of glpi (closing of window GLPI):
    // Redirect to the login-page
     //glpi_header ($cfg_glpi [“root_doc”]. ”/“. $noCAS);
    echo “<html><body onload=  “Javascript: window.close ();  “></body>     </html>” ? >
