Local Directory Configuration with out LDAP

Hello Experts,

We are in the processing of setting up E-Sorucing application. Do any have experience on setting up the Directory configuration using a local driver.

It talks about placing the password.properties file in the folder esourcing/config. Has any been able to configure this. Need inputs and pointer for content of the password.properties as well as appropriate settings in the direcory configuration.

Thanks is advance,

BR, Jith

    Perhaps I'm mistaken, but I believe it will automatically place this file there for you when using the local directories option. It's basically just a shadow file containing hashed passwords.

    Hi Jith

    When you are using local directory configuration without LDAP, you need to follow the procedure below

    If no LDAP connection is available, you can temporarily use the local driver to

    maintain user account passwords in a flat file, password.properties, located in

    eSourcing/config. This should only be used as a temporary solution for sandboxes or

    development systems, as you cannot go into Production mode with a directory

    configuration using the local driver

    Incase the file password.properties isnt available in your eSourcing/config folder, you need to do some settings as mentioned below, the password.properties file gets generated automatically.

    Local Directory Set up

    Use this configuration when connecting to a real LDAP server is impossible, inconvenient, or undesired.

    Property Setting

    External ID Enabled

    Display Name Disabled

    Usage Active Buyside

    Driver Local

    Directory Username Enter any text, such as n/a

    Directory Password Enter any text, such as n/a

    UID Schema No value is needed

    Changeable Passwords Enabled

    Expired Passwords Enabled

    New Accounts Enabled

    Browsing Disabled

    All Controls Disabled

    Properties No values are needed

    Let me know if the issue is resolved, if this is successful and your SMTP is configured correctly, you will receive the welcome mail from the application for a Buyer Account that you created at that point.

    Regards

    Tridip
