What is ztfy.ldap ?

ztfy.ldap is a small set of utilities and classes to make LDAP interaction easier within a ZTK/ZopeApp based application.

The main class is LDAPGroupsFolder, which is an authentication plug-in used to enable LDAP groups as authentication principals. This class is extending ZTFY.security package so that LDAP groups can be used everywhere where a principal can be selected to grant a role.

LDAPGroupsFolder code is mainly based on "ldapgroups" package, which seems actually unmaintained.

Based on ldappool package, ztfy.ldap also provides a pooled LDAP adapter, which stores it's connections within a pool.

Adapters for some of ztfy.mail interfaces are also provided.

How to use ztfy.ldap ?

ztfy.ldap usages will be described on ZTFY home page
