I have a confluence server that authenticates against an OpenLDAP server. This is working fine, it obeys the groups, obeys the users, lets users change their password, etc.
This is also where the problem comes in, when changing passwords it doesn't seem to be behaving the same way a ldappasswd command would, it is allowing users to override the password policy for instance (length, complexity). Those are being enforced when I run ldappasswd or passwd on a general linux machine.
I assume this is happening because the query is being executed as the bind user, which has access to change the userPassword field without going through the pwpolicy module.
Is there a way to have Confluence bind as the user vs the binddn for password changes? That should fix that problem.
