Enabling pass through LDAP authentication for OpenIDM
Out of the box OpenIDM uses a local "openidm-admin" account to perform RESTful authentication. This is fine for testing, but for production you probably want to maintain control over the admin accounts in your directory.
This wiki entry will show you how to configure pass through authentication to LDAP.
This will allow you to maintain the OpenIDM administrative accounts used for RESTful access in your directory. You simply add these accounts to the LDAP group specified in the configuration. Check out the wiki for the full story.
