Managed to enter 2 IPs into the directory configuration and now get a stack trace when click on conn

Harjot Saberwal April 29, 2019

Hi There,

I was looking at ways to get crowd to connect to 2 ldap servers and i tried to put both ips of my ldap servers into the connector part of directory. It accepted the 2 ips and continues to work, but when i click on connecter in the specific directory, i get a stack trace with the following error:

java.lang.RuntimeException: Illegal character in authority at index 7: ldap://

as you can see, it's the 2 ips that i entered with a space. how can i reset that configuration so that it only uses the first ip? Not sure which xml file contains the configuration so that i can fix the issue?

It's in the database, but you should be able to change it by editing the connector.

You'll need to put in a valid address for a single ldap server, without a protocol named.

Thanks Nic,

Where can i change it? if on the webpage i click on the connector, it immediately gives me a stack trace:-

java.lang.RuntimeException: Illegal character in authority at index 7: ldap://

So i cannot edit the connector as i cannot get to it. Or am i missing something?

NP worked it out, The hint that this configuration is in the database was useful!

Found a table in the database that had the info i needed. cwd_directory_attribute

found the line that was bad and updated it using the following:

update cwd_directory_attribute

Set attribute_value = 'ldap://'

where directory_id= 557057 and attribute_name = 'ldap.url'


the directory_id is unique to the specific directory, and each directory has a 'ldap.url', so set this back and it worked.
