There are two ways to setup partial Directory authentication in Jira but the differences between them are not quite well documented. Which are they?
I am interested about ALL things that are different between this two types of setups.
I discovered few of them, but it is essential to know them all.
It is quite tough to explain the difference between both of the mentioned directories without specifying which area you are interested in.
In general, the integration method between JIRA and LDAP differenciate by two methods:
There are several point that differenciate these method
The above differrences is just some of the general points, hope this would help clarify your doubts on this.
Thanks, clearly the linked page gives a lot of usefull information about how directory works. Does it happen for you to know if there are any performance implications or others regarding reliability and the posibility to fallback to other directory server if one is down?
Please refer to our limitation documentation here:
If you do have a clone LDAP server you could create two directory while the other is disabled when the first order LDAP server is working fine. When its down, just activate the second directory and disable the first one. This should works fine as JIRA use username to mapped the content instead of ID, so if the username is exactly the same, it should be fine.
Sorry to inform you that this process could not be automate by default.
You have already answered your question :)
In simple terms, delegated LDAP uses LDAP only for authentication. All group information is internal to JIRA and LDAP connection is readonly. On the other hand a direct LDAP connection can sync users, groups from LDAP to JIRA. It can also write back groups and users to LDAP.
