Users

TODO add this to the storage overview? or is this a different part? That should be started as a separate service ? And documented elsewhere, eg. in the accounts?

User and Group provisioning

In oc10 users are identified by a username, which cannot change, because it is used as a foreign key in several tables. For oCIS we are internally identifying users by a UUID, while using the username in the WebDAV and OCS APIs for backwards compatability. To distinguish this in the URLs we are using <username> instead of <userid>. You may have encountered <user_layout>, which refers to a template that can be configured to build several path segments by filling in user properties, e.g. the first character of the username ({{substr 0 1 .Username}}/{{.Username}}), the identity provider ({{.Id.Idp}}/{{.Username}}) or the email ({{.Mail}})

Make no mistake, the OCS Provisioning API uses userid while it actually is the username, because it is what you use to login.

We are currently working on adding user management through the CS3 API to handle user and group provisioning (and deprovisioning).

Demo driver

This is a simple user driver for testing. It contains three users:

einstein:relativity
marie:radioactivity
richard:superfluidity

In order to use the demo driver you need to export the relevant environment variable:

export STORAGE_USERS_DRIVER=demo

JSON driver

In order to switch from the ldap driver to JSON based users you need to export the relevant environment variables:

export STORAGE_USERS_DRIVER=json
export STORAGE_USERS_JSON=/path/to/users.json

For the format of the users.json have a look at the reva examples

LDAP driver

This is the default user driver.

If the below defaults don’t match your environment change them accordingly:

export STORAGE_LDAP_HOSTNAME=localhost
export STORAGE_LDAP_PORT=9126
export STORAGE_LDAP_BASE_DN='dc=ocis,dc=test'
export STORAGE_LDAP_USERFILTER='(&(objectclass=posixAccount)(cn=%s))'
export STORAGE_LDAP_GROUPFILTER='(&(objectclass=posixGroup)(cn=%s))'
export STORAGE_LDAP_BIND_DN='cn=reva,ou=sysusers,dc=ocis,dc=test'
export STORAGE_LDAP_BIND_PASSWORD=reva
export STORAGE_LDAP_USER_SCHEMA_UID=uid
export STORAGE_LDAP_USER_SCHEMA_MAIL=mail
export STORAGE_LDAP_USER_SCHEMA_DISPLAYNAME=sn
export STORAGE_LDAP_USER_SCHEMA_CN=cn

Then restart the bin/storage users and bin/storage auth-basic services for the changes to take effect.
