My Configuration (not running YunoHost)
Hardware: x64 lxc container running Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS
Installed Packages: nginx-extras lua-json lua-ldap lua-filesystem lua-socket lua-rex-pcre
Description of my problem
The test at this line: https://github.com/YunoHost/SSOwat/blob/stretch-unstable/helpers.lua#L302 of the SSOWat package is returning true no matter what value is set in the conf.json
This probably isnt a big deal for actual YunoHost setups, but I’m using an alternative LDAP provider which doesnt provide a ‘userPassword’ attribute meaning the ensure_user_password_uses_strong_hash always leads to an error.
I’ve tried debugging this by having the value of conf[‘ldap_enforce_crypt’] dumped to the log. Even when the value is false the if-test is considered positive.
I’ve tried the following conf.json configurations without any luck:
I suspect this might have something to do with the way the conf file is being loaded in. Is it perhaps being loaded as a string instead of a true boolean. I have tested this theory by altering the test to read:
if conf[‘ldap_enforce_crypt’] ~= “false” then
and it now behaves as expected. I appreciate this is a plaster rather than fixing the root of the problem and so haven’t considered offering a pull request. I don’t have the lua knowledge to debug the config.lua module.
For my needs I can just work with a fork of the repository, but I hoped this might be helpful to the great development team at YunoHost.
