Allow installation definable LDAP filters as a Parameter
I wanted to restrict LDAP users to bugzilla. Since most LDAP servers maintain a wealth of info about it's users, I wanted to filter on some of that information. To this end, I have added a Parameter to defparams.pl called LDAPadditional. This parameter should conform to the string representation for search filters as defined in RFC 2254 (http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2254.html). When set, it is AND'd with the Param("LDAPmailattribute") to come up with a search. For example, my variables are set as follows: LDAPmailattribute = mail LDAPadditional = (|(dept=A)(dept=B)) The above would search for the user with mail equal to the given LDAPusername, that is in either dept A OR dept B. Code changes were the addition of a parameter in defparams.pl and filter code in CGI.pl. I have been using this for several weeks now and I haven't hit any problems. I will submit a patch following the bug submission.
This patch affects: defparams.pl, CGI.pl
Ooops, I have some extra stuff in the CGI.pl part of the patch. Those fixes are the result of an outstanding bug that no one has responded to (bug#105504). Sorry to sneak them in, adjust as you see fit. Thanks!
