Removing LDAP authentication from a Phabricator installation

Asked by lucasb on Feb 16 2017, 12:21 AM.



I need to disconnect LDAP authentication on our Phabricator installation, as the service that we are using will soon be deprecated. Is it possible to switch my users to basic password/username authentication?

Some notes:

  • We tried connecting a 'Username/Password' account in Settings > External Accounts. There is no option to do this for users that have signed in strictly using LDAP.
  • We only have 15 users, so updating the user table directly is definitely not out of the question. I would need some guidance on how to do this properly though.

Thank you,

You will likely just want to write a script to manually generate passwords and insert them for users and notify everyone on next login that they need to go and change them. That is the only way I currently see to do this.
