Spring Security LDAP Authentication and gather user details from local database



In summary, user is being authenticated, but I do appear to actually have logged into the users account.

I’m currently working on implementing LDAP authentication on a project. It appears that the authentication portion of things are working in the sense that my application does accept the correct credentials. The issue I’m having is that I cant seem to access ‘principal’ in my jsp views. (I was able to access all of this before making the switch to LDAP). When running a trace my CustomUserDetails service is querying and pulling the correct account information. Any assistance is appreciated

This will display the proper username:

<sec:authorize access="isAuthenticated()">
   <h2><sec:authentication property="name"/></h2>
</sec:authorize>

This does not (it did work before LDAP)

<sec:authorize access="isAuthenticated()">
   <h2><sec:authentication property="principal.firstName"/></h2>
</sec:authorize>

Answer

If I’m not wrong, You switched to Ldap Authorization, set url and DN patterns but still provide userDetailsService which search user in database. You need to set UserDetailsContextMapper by implementing the interface and creating your custom one. This will map data from ldap directory context to your custom UserDetails and return it through mapUserFromContext method.

Here is an example CustomUserDetailsContextMapper:

public class CustomUserDetailsContextMapper implements UserDetailsContextMapper {


    private LdapUser ldapUser = null;
    private String commonName;

    @Override
    public UserDetails mapUserFromContext(DirContextOperations ctx, String username, Collection<? extends GrantedAuthority> authorities) {
        Attributes attributes = ctx.getAttributes();
        UserDetails ldapUserDetails = (UserDetails) super.mapUserFromContext(ctx,username,authorities);
        try {
            commonName = attributes.get("cn").get().toString();
        } catch (NamingException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }
        ldapUser = new LdapUser(ldapUserDetails);
        ldapUser.setCommonName(commonName);
        return ldapUser;
    }

    @Override
    public void mapUserToContext(UserDetails user, DirContextAdapter ctx) {

    }
}

My custom LdapUser:

public class LdapUser implements UserDetails
{
    private String commonName;
    private UserDetails ldapUserDetails;

    public LdapUser(LdapUserDetails ldapUserDetails) {
        this.ldapUserDetails = ldapUserDetails;
    }

    @Override
    public String getDn() {
        return ldapUserDetails.getDn();
    }

    @Override
    public void eraseCredentials() {

    }

    @Override
    public Collection<? extends GrantedAuthority> getAuthorities() {
        return ldapUserDetails.getAuthorities();
    }

    @Override
    public String getPassword() {
        return ldapUserDetails.getPassword();
    }

    @Override
    public String getUsername() {
        return ldapUserDetails.getUsername();
    }

    @Override
    public boolean isAccountNonExpired() {
        return ldapUserDetails.isAccountNonExpired();
    }

    @Override
    public boolean isAccountNonLocked() {
        return ldapUserDetails.isAccountNonLocked();
    }

    @Override
    public boolean isCredentialsNonExpired() {
        return ldapUserDetails.isCredentialsNonExpired();
    }

    @Override
    public boolean isEnabled() {
        return ldapUserDetails.isEnabled();
    }
}

Then set CustomUserDetailsContextMapper in auth configuration. This is how you will be able to get your user from authentication.getPrincipal(). I hope I correctly understand your problem and answered.
