Login failed against active directory


Hi all

I had the Bonita BPM running perfectly.

I needed to Modify the Bonita.war file to add a small piece of code to the web.xml

All deploying the file using Weblogic admin console, the portal is up and running but login is not working.

I have reverted back to the old bonita.war file.

Still the login is failing.

I get a error - username or password is incorrect. I have verified against other users. All the users are not able to log in as well.

Technical user credentials are working as i can log in with install.

I have rebooted weblogic as well.

I am using bonita BPM 7.3.3

How did you configure authentication against ldap? And do you have users created in Bonita (synchronized with ldap)? It's not easy to do it correctly in community version.

If you need to configure ldap synchronization and authentication in Bonita Community you can download a module for that from my website, there is also an instruction how to use it.

Best regards,

Thanks contact_420 for your feedback.

I am using the Subscription version.
The Issue seemed to be that the Technical User and platform Admin credentials were updated recently.
I have to change the Bonita.properties file.
After that I ran the BonitaSubscriptionLdapSynchronizer.sh
There I got the Error cannot connect to Ldap://x.x.x.x:x
The timing seemed really bad. The Deployment of the War file and the AD connection outage happened together.
I assumed somethin went wrong with Deployment but after all the AD link was down.
