      Description

      MongoDB 2.6 will integrate LDAP authentication, allowing users to authenticate in MongoDB through a call to LDAP. MongoDB 2.6, however, will not automate syncing of MongoDB user and role mappings between MongoDB and LDAP; customers will still have to manually update user credentials within MongoDB.

      To simplify this, MongoDB will provide a sample script that will allow users to synch changes made to LDAP user and role mappings with their corresponding definitions in MongoDB. The script will be provided to work with a simple LDAP hierarchy that defines a MongoDB group and underlying users:

      LDAP Organization - acme
      LDAP MongoDB Group - MongoDB_dbAdminAnyDatabase
      LDAP MongoDB User - Bob Jones

      Users can then customize to meet their specific LDAP structures or requirements.

      Functional requirements and proposed test plan is here:
