Configure the Full Distribution for Glassfish

This page explains how to configure the full distribution for glassfish application server.

LDAP

In order to setup LDAP for the glassfish distribution, you have to add the plugin and adjust the process engine configuration.

Add the LDAP Plugin

If you use the pre-packaged distribution, the ldap plugin is already present and you can skip this step.

Make sure the camunda-identity-ldap-$PLATFORM_VERSION.jar is present in the GLASSFISH_HOME/glassfish/lib folder.

Configure the LDAP Plugin

Edit the file bpm-platform.xml located inside the folder $GLASSFISH_HOME/glassfish/domains/domain1/applications/camunda-bpm-platform/camunda-glassfish-service-VERSION.jar/META-INF and add the LDAP Identity Provider Plugin and the Administrator Authorization Plugin.

          <property name="managerDn">uid=jonny,ou=office-berlin,o=camunda,c=org</property>

          <property name="baseDn">o=camunda,c=org</property>

          <property name="userSearchBase"></property>
          <property name="userSearchFilter">(objectclass=person)</property>

          <property name="userIdAttribute">uid</property>
          <property name="userFirstnameAttribute">cn</property>
          <property name="userLastnameAttribute">sn</property>
          <property name="userEmailAttribute">mail</property>
          <property name="userPasswordAttribute">userpassword</property>

          <property name="groupSearchBase"></property>
          <property name="groupSearchFilter">(objectclass=groupOfNames)</property>
          <property name="groupIdAttribute">ou</property>
          <property name="groupNameAttribute">cn</property>

          <property name="groupMemberAttribute">member</property>

        </properties>
      </plugin>
      <plugin>
        <class>org.camunda.bpm.engine.impl.plugin.AdministratorAuthorizationPlugin</class>
        <properties>
          <property name="administratorUserName">admin</property>
        </properties>
      </plugin>
    </plugins>
  </process-engine>
</bpm-platform>

The administratorUserName property should contain the user id of the LDAP user you want to grant administrator authorizations to. You can then use this user to log into the webapplication and grant authorizations to additional users.

See our user guide for complete documentation on the LDAP Identity Provider Plugin and the Administrator Authorization Plugin.

HAL Resource Caching

If you use LDAP as Indentity Provider, you should consider activating caching of Users and Groups in the Camunda webapplication. In order to activate this, add the following configuration to the web.xml file of Camunda webapplication (camunda-webapp-glassfish-$PLATFORM_VERSION.war/WEB-INF/web.xml):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app version="2.5" xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee"
  xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
  xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-app_2_5.xsd">

      {

            "capacity": 100,
            "secondsToLive": 900
          },
          "org.camunda.bpm.engine.rest.hal.group.HalGroup": {
            "capacity": 100,
            "secondsToLive": 900
          }
        }
      }
    </param-value>
  </context-param>
