LDAP sync

Mr. Ian McNaught
Hi

We've successfully got Koha running using LDAP to authenticate via our
active directory server, but we would like to go one step further and have
patron accounts provisioned based on user accounts in AD. Currently a user
account will be created if they log in to the OPAC interface, but if they
try to take a book on loan without first logging in, they will not have a
patron account. To avoid this issue we are manually creating patron
accounts that match up with AD accounts, but it would be nice if this part
could be automated. Is there any sync script available? Or web service we
could use to create said script? Has anyone else resolved this issue?

Thanks

Ian

Re: LDAP sync

Hi Ian,

I am not aware of an existing script, although the new REST API for
patrons should be helpful in the future.

I also found a bug that could be interesting to you and is currently
waiting to be tested:

*BugĀ 11808*
<https://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=11808> - When
searching for a cardnumber in the intranet, also try to search for it on
the LDAP server if one is configured

Hope this helps,

Katrin
