This only retrieves data from the LDAP, it does not provide authentication. Is this what you want to do? Authenticate a user?

If so then you will need to do something like in this post...

Hi, I have the same observation.. I want to connect an LDAP server to Bonita BPM ( 7.2 - Tomcat) for users authentication.

I read the answers in :
but it's for Bonita 6.X and I don't know if it will work on a new version..

Has anyone tried it ?

I'll try to clarify the integration of Bonita with a LDAP or Active Directory (AD) server.

Integration requires two steps:

  1. Make sure that all users stored in the LDAP/AD are created in the Bonita Engine database
  2. Configure the authentication of Bonita Portal to check user credentials (username and password) against the LDAP/AD server instead of the default behavior (default behavior is to use the password stored in Bonita Engine database)

It's possible to achieve point #2 with Bonita Community Edition by updating the authentication configuration. But point #1 actually requires some software to handle the synchronization between the LDAP∕AD and the Bonita Engine database. Such tool is provided with Bonita Subscription Edition (including documentation and support) or can be redeveloped from scratch.

LDAP connector is a way to pull some data from an LDAP/AD server and use them in a Bonita process but is not related to user authentication.
