Subject: Schooltool + LDAP setup
To: Tom Hoffman<tom.hoffman@xxxxxxxxx>
My institution (Military Academy of Lithuania) is currently looking for
Student Information System. SchoolTool has been considered as one of
preferable choices because it is open source, part of development team
is from Lithuania and it has integration with CAS.
Would you be so kind and provide more information about ST+LDAP
requirements, setup process, etc?
Sure, I'll look into that Thu morning, Lithuania time.
We do not have out-of-the-box LDAP support at the moment, but we are
considering to add at least simple support in next Ubuntu LTS (12.04)
There is an old plug-in that adds LDAP auth support and as far as I
can tell it should work, but it never made to "installable from software
If there is a need, we could make installable LDAP available
earlier. Set-up would then be manually editing configuration files and
adding something like this:
On the other hand, if you run a CAS server (http://www.jasig.org/cas
<http://www.jasig.org/cas>), you can use schooltool.cas plug-in.
Since it's not in Ubuntu "universe", you'll need to add schooltool
PPA (personal package archives):
schooltool.cas is available for Ubuntu Lucid/Maverick/Natty, please
add the corresponding PPA; then install python-schooltool.cas package.
After installing, you (as admin) will need to manually edit few files.
Create cas.zcml in schooltool plugins directory, for example:
$ sudo gedit /etc/schooltool/schooltool-2009/plugins/cas.zcml
Fill it with this line:
<include package="schooltool.cas" />
Then edit main.conf:
$ sudo gedit /etc/schooltool/schooltool-2009/main.conf
And add following lines at the end:
Hope this helps,
