Using Open source LDAP

Using Open source LDAP

Hi,

As we know starting Windchill 12.0.1 DS is no longer shipped.

Tried to OpenDJ community edition for Windchill 12.0.2 on VM the installation works fine.

However the question arises how far is it recommended/safe to use a open source LDAP for customer.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Regards,

Durga

Hi,

 

Nowadays, most of the customers use Windchill at least connected to the corporate directory (Active Directory).

Installing a third party LDAP is still required for "administrative" accounts like super-users or administrators. So most of the users' credentials are safe (as long as SSL is configured).

 

Knowing that Windchill DS was based on OpenDJ / OpenDS, there is no much changes. You might have noticed lot of similarities.


If the fact that OpenDJ is an open-source concerns you, don't forget Apache HTTPServer is an open-source as well as the JDK you most likely installed to run Windchill.
