I have installed request tracker v 4.0.8 and everything is working. Now I'm trying to integrate it with Active Directory 2008. I used this DOC:

But unable to get it working. The RT weblogin doesn't even check for the AD server. I can't find any logs regarding to it. I have already seen a question here in serverfault regarding active directory and Rt, but it was for old version and I'm using a new version.

try this. in your apache config place:

<Location /rt>
        AddDefaultCharset UTF-8
        SetHandler perl-script
        PerlResponseHandler RT::Mason
        Require valid-user
        AuthType Basic
        AuthName "RT Server"
        AuthBasicProvider ldap
        AuthzLDAPAuthoritative Off
        AuthLDAPBindDN "domainName\someExistingADUser"
        AuthLDAPBindPassword passwordForThatUser
        AuthLDAPURL ldap://address.of.your.domain.controller:389/ou=Users,dc=some,dc=name,dc=ofyourdomain?sAMAccountName?sub?(objectClass=*)
<LocationMatch "/rt/NoAuth">
        Satisfy Any
        Allow from all
<LocationMatch "/rt//REST/1.0/NoAuth">
        Satisfy Any
        Allow from all

and in add:

Set($WebExternalAuth , 1);
Set($WebFallbackToInternalAuth , 1);
Set($WebExternalAuto , 1);

restart apache and hope for the best :]

Thank you. But doesn't work. Its giving 500 internal error. And can't find anything in error log. – FELDAP Jan 2 '13 at 8:01
try finding out if it's apache giving you 500s or rt - reconfigure things and set ldap-based authentication on some static file or folder not related to rt. – pQd Jan 2 '13 at 8:41
No. Even RT doesn't send the error. I checked in RT logs too. I don't understand what you mean by setting up static file. – FELDAP Jan 2 '13 at 8:53
try to use ldap authentication within apache for a static folder; forget about rt at this stage and try to see if ldap authentication in apache works. if it does not - it's apache configs you need to check; if it does - it's time to look more into details of rt. – pQd Jan 2 '13 at 9:22
You are right. I made a test file and checked. Its shows the same error 500. – FELDAP Jan 2 '13 at 11:14
