Gerrit and ActiveDirectory

We’ve recently started testing out Gerrit at work and one of the tasks when setting it up was to integrate the authentication with ActiveDirectory.

The process was fairly straight forward. For reference here is an example AD configuration:


 server = ldap://

 accountBase = ou=People,dc=company,dc=org

 accountPattern = (&(objectCategory=Person)(sAMAccountName=${username}))

 accountFullName = displayName

 accountEmailAddress = mail

 groupBase = ou=Groups,ou=People,dc=company,dc=org

 groupMemberPattern = (&(objectClass=group)(member=${dn}))

 username = cn=Gerrit User,ou=People,dc=company,dc=org

 password = ********

The username/password are for the “bind” user that will be used to query the server. More information can be found on the Gerrit auth documentation page.
