      Description

      Context

      Some clients have a crappy LDAP and/or crappy network so they have authentication issues when Nuxeo is trying to do LDAP operation.

      Since this is a recurring problem, even if this is not really a Nuxeo issue, we probably have to work on finding a workaround.

      Approach

      To do that we would have a new kind of mixed LDAP/SQL directory that :

      • tries first to authenticated against LDAP
      • store (cache) the result in a SQL DB
      • catch errors and falls back to SQL data if LDAP access fails

      The idea is basically to :

      • replicate progressively the LDAP inside a store that is managed by Nuxeo
      • provide transparent fall-back
