BlueMind allows you to export your directory in LDAP format so that it can be viewed and queried by other applications such as an LDAP directory.

Synchronisation LDAP


  1. Install the packages required on the BlueMind host server:

    aptitude update
    aptitude install bm-plugin-admin-console-ldap-export bm-plugin-core-ldap-export
    yum update
    yum install bm-plugin-admin-console-ldap-export bm-plugin-core-ldap-export
  2. Restart BlueMind:

    bmctl restart
  3. Install the package bm-ldap-role on the server on which you want the LDAP directory to run (which may be the BlueMind server or another separate server)

    aptitude update
    aptitude install bm-ldap-role
    yum update
    yum install bm-ldap-role
  4. Assign the role to the server. To do this:
    • while logged in as admin0, go to the admin console > Application Servers
    • if your are using a separate server that does not exist yet, add it using the button New > Host
    • select the server and go to the "Server roles" tab
    • in the "LDAP Directory" section, check "LDAP master directory created by BlueMind":
  5. Click "Save" to confirm
  6. Next, link this server to the domains as desired.
    To do this, go to the section Domain Management > Manage Domains and:
    • select the domain you want to export in LDAP format
    • go to the "BM Services" tab
    • select the server for the service with the same name "LDAP master directory created by BlueMind":
    • Click "Save" to confirm
    Repeat this process for each domain as required.
