This plugin allows you to resolve user email addresses from an LDAP directory.

LDAP Email plugin

This plugin allows you to resolve user email addresses from an LDAP directory. Because there is no UI support for mail resolver configuration, you have to configure this plugin manually. That's done by creating a file named com.mtvi.plateng.hudson.ldap.LdapMailAddressResolver.xml and dropping it in the HUDSON_HOME directory. Here's an example configuration file:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<com.mtvi.plateng.hudson.ldap.Configuration>
	<server>ldap://testserver:389</server>
	<baseDN>ou=People,dc=test,dc=com</baseDN>
	<bindDN>cn=Hudson,ou=Internal,dc=test,dc=com</bindDN>
	<bindPassword>password</bindPassword>
	<emailAttribute>mail</emailAttribute>
	<searchAttribute>uid</searchAttribute>
</com.mtvi.plateng.hudson.ldap.Configuration>

The bindDN and bindPassword elements are only required if your LDAP server does not support anonymous binding.

By default, the plugin will form a distinguished name (DN) with this pattern:

<searchAttribute>=<userName>,<baseDN>

However, there are environments where you need to perform an LDAP search. To do this, add a performSearch element to the configuration file:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<com.mtvi.plateng.hudson.ldap.Configuration>
	<server>ldap://testserver:389</server>
	<baseDN>dc=test,dc=com</baseDN>
	<bindDN>cn=Hudson,ou=Internal,dc=test,dc=com</bindDN>
	<bindPassword>password</bindPassword>
	<emailAttribute>mail</emailAttribute>
	<searchAttribute>uid</searchAttribute>
        <performSearch>true</performSearch>
</com.mtvi.plateng.hudson.ldap.Configuration>

This will perform a subtree-scoped search within the baseDN with the filter

<searchAttribute>=<userName>
