Bug Fixes

Create new LDAP connections in a privileged thread context

When the LDAP connection pool scales up, the code seems to be missing the necessary special privilege block. It failed with an AccessControlException.This is now fixed.

Introduced config attributes retrieve_attributes for LDAP auth backend

This fix introduce two new config options: ldap.user_search.retrieve_attributes and ldap.group_search.retrieve_attributes. Both accept a list of strings that specify the attributes to be retrieved in the LDAP result set. Some LDAP directory might have a large number of attributes associated with single entries. In order to reduce network activity, it might make sense to allow to specify the attributes to select for queries.
