To prevent issues you could always login to
Frevvoproduct
 using lower case jstevens. LDAP will grant access as it is case insensitive and
Frevvoproduct
 will know that you may have the designer or admin special permission. However users can forget to do this. To force this configure
Frevvoproduct
's web.xml parameter frevvo.login.userid.case by adding the <context-param> lines you see below. You can specify a value of either lower or upper.

Code Block
languagejavascript
<context-param>     
    <param-name>frevvo.login.userid.case</param-name>     
    <param-value>lower</param-value>     
    <description>Force all login user ids to upper or lower case</description> 
</context-param>

The second problem is in directing tasks to frevvo users if your LDAP user names are mixed case. One solution is to use hidden controls on your forms with rules to convert the case of user names to lower case. The example below shows two text controls on a form, one visible, EmployeeMixedCase, and the other hidden, Employee.

A user types a name (regardless of case) into the EmployeeMixedCase control. The hidden Employee control has a business rule that takes the value of the visible control and converts it to lowercase.

Code Block
Employee.value = EmployeeMixedCase.value.toLowerCase(); 

The form or workflow routing can then use {Employee} rather than the control that may be mixed case. 

Warning

 Changing the case of LDAP userids in Active Directory can cause undesired results. Use caution.

 

Configure frevvo.internal.baseurl in frevvo.xml for LDAP SSO

This parameter is needed in frevvo.xml for various activities like accessing ACL page , publishing templates , resetting tasks etc. Let's say you have a browser signed in via SSO to machine m1 (port 80).  IIS is running on m1 (port 80) redirecting /frevvo/web to frevvo running on m2:8082.   Browser submits form to m1, IIS redirects to m2:8082.  The doc action is a frevvo:// URI which gets resolved to http://m1/frevvo/... 

Frevvoproduct
POSTs to this URI  but m1 rejects the POST since it is not authenticated.

To avoid situations such as these,  set frevvo.internal.baseurl to the actual host:port of the 

Frevvoproduct
server. Follow these steps:

  1. edit <frevvo-home>/tomcat/conf/cstalina/localhost/frevvo.xml
  2. Add the parameter shown below with your information: Save the changes to the file.
Code Block
Parameter name="frevvo.internal.baseurl" value="http://<ip of the m/c where frevvo server is hosted>:<port>" override="false"/>
Warning

If your system is configured for LDAP SSO and the upload and video controls may exhibit the following behaviors:

  1. Uploading an image to an upload control in a form that is accessed via a Space on an iPad will not work. The "uploading...." snake image is seen continuously. This issue will be addressed in a future version of
    Frevvoproduct
    .
  2. The video control will ask for credentials again when the form is loaded, if you are using the FireFox browser. In IE9, you will see the message "This web-page wants to run the following add-on: 'Windows Media Player' from 'Microsoft Corporation'. What's the risk?" Enter your credentials or run the add-on to proceed. A potential solution is to setup IIS so that it does not require re-authentication for every single request.

LDAP Configuration Properties

These are the properties used to configure the LDAP connector. The properties in bold are required.

Property Description
com.frevvo.security.ldap.connection.urlldap server url
com.frevvo.security.ldap.connection.nameUser to connect to LDAP. This user must have the proper permissions to read and run queries in the ldap server. If using Active Directory, it is common to specify the domain. For instance, TEST\Administrator refers to the user Administrator in the TEST domain.
com.frevvo.security.ldap.connection.passwordPassword for the user defined in com.frevvo.security.ldap.connection.name.
com.frevvo.security.ldap.usersBaseSearches for users will start from the ldap node specified by this property.If the value is empty the searches will start from the root domain.
com.frevvo.security.ldap.groupsBaseSearches for the groups will start from the ldap node specified by this property. If the value is empty, searches will start from the root domain
com.frevvo.security.ldap.userIdDisplayAttributeUser attribute that will be visible in frevvo. This is what will be displayed in the list of users a tenant admin sees and has to be unique in the server. Another restriction is that the values for the attribute configured here cannot have spaces. For instance, don't configure CN as the value since it can contain spaces in most systems.
 com.frevvo.security.ldap.groupIdDisplayAttributeGroup attribute that will be visible in frevvo. This is, for instance, what will be displayed in the list of groups a tenant admin sees or the groups used in workflows. This attribute has to be unique in the server.
com.frevvo.security.ldap.notificationsNotifications are emails sent by frevvo to workflows participants. If ''true'', notifications will be sent. (default=true)
com.frevvo.security.ldap.allGroupsFilterThe expected value is an LDAP filter expression. The expression should return the groups that will be available to be used in frevvo workflows. com.frevvo.security.ldap.groupIdDisplayAttribute
com.frevvo.security.ldap.allUsersFilterThe expected value is an LDAP filter expression. The expression should return the users that will be available to be used in frevvo work flows and authentication. com.frevvo.security.ldap.groupIdDisplayAttribute

com.frevvo.security.ldap.frevvoDesignersFilter Deprecated in 4.5

The expected value is an LDAP filter expression. This expression needs to return a list of users (not groups) that will be considered frevvo designers. Microsoft Active directory Default groups (Domain Users etc.) are not supported.

com.frevvo.security.ldap.frevvoTenantAdminFilter Deprecated in 4.5The expected value is an LDAP filter expression. This expression needs to return a list of users (not groups) that will be considered frevvo tenant admins. Microsoft Active directory Default groups (Domain Users etc.) are not supported.

com.frevvo.security.ldap.distinguishedNameAttribute Deprecated in 4.1.3

Deprecated in 4.1.3. Name of the ''distinguished name'' attribute.
 com.frevvo.security.ldap.userMemberOfAttribute 
 com.frevvo.security.ldap.groupMemberAttribute 
 com.frevvo.security.ldap.firstNameAttribute

Name of the user ''first name'' attribute

 com.frevvo.security.ldap.lastNameAttributeName of the user ''last name'' attribute.
 com.frevvo.security.ldap.emailAttributeName of the user ''email'' attribute in the LDAP server. This is used in email notifications
 com.frevvo.security.ldap.managerAttribute 
 com.frevvo.security.ldap.cacheEnable or disable the caching of users and groups. The default value is 'true'. This property is no longer needed and can be removed. It has been deprecated.
 com.frevvo.security.ldap.ignoreCaseThis makes frevvo ignore the case stored in LDAP systems, primarily for the purpose of determining roles.
com.frevvo.security.ldap.customAttributesThis is a a comma separated list of attribute names to be retrieved from the LDAP Server.
