Drupal for sociology

This isn’t confined to sociology’s use, thinking in broader terms of what serves as a minimal UVM application base. Specifically,

  • Single Sign On (SSO)
  • LDAP attributes to Drupal Roles mapping

SSO covered in previous posts. Now we tackle LDAP. Goal is to try LDAP module’s Organic Groups option.


OG Requires

  • Entity Reference  http://ftp.drupal.org/files/projects/entityreference-7.x-1.1.tar.gz
  • Features gz (88.2 KB)
  • Organic Groups gz (254.69 KB)

But it was all in vane.  LDAP mapping options same for OG as for normal Drupal groups, so unless you are leveraging LDAP groups it gets you nowhere

But get this: I’ve been using the ‘recomended’  7.x-2.x (Beta 8) LDAP module code. Switching to 7.x-1.x code adds a lot more options , including this:

which works perfectly, except for annoying notices whenever somebody new logs in ….

Looking for an option to turn off notices
The absence of this option in the 7,x-2.x code is noted in the module bug reports, hopefully it will work its way into the 7.x-2.x RC code
