Custom Jackrabbit Oak Identity Provider

Avatar

Level 1

Greetings,

I just wrote my own external Oak identity provider (1) based on LDAP identity provider in the Oak project (2) and configured it based on instructions in AEM documentation (3).

I must have missed something since the authenticate method (4) is never called even if the service is activated and the identity provider name seems to be accepted. Do i need some additional JAAS configuration somewhere or what might be the problem?

Thank you in advance.

The out of the box LdapIdentityProvider is a service implementing the ExternalIdentityProvider interface. 
The source code of [1] might get you some hints..

Thank you for your answer.

Yes. That is the one i used as my template and everything seems to be running ok. It's just that the authenticate method on that identity provider never gets called.

I'm not sure if i'm missing something in the configuration. For example, what should i put in the "JAAS Realm" textfield in "Apache Jackrabbit Oak External Login Module" configuration? Is the default "jackrabbit.oak" or "com.day.crx" or empty or something else..?
