Howto force Jahia to read all LDAP users

  Written by The Jahia Team
   Estimated reading time:
7.1.0.1

Is there any configuration from Jahia Administration for hot deploying of users/groups LDAP ?

The customer has noticed Jahia 7.1.0.1 does not update the users list after the creation of a new user in his LDAP server.
Jahia has to be restarted and then the users list is updated.

Answer

Generally, users are read when the first request for user membership will be made through search and by default not listed.
A Jahia restart is not needed. There is a configuration search parameter as "preload" which default set to "false", please use that to get the users proactively loaded.

The configuration details are provided in our documentation at:
https://academy.jahia.com/documentation/techwiki/admin/users-and-groups --> Search and membership parameters
 

Key Default value Description
preload false If set to true forces the reading of all group members when a group is retrieved. Otherwise, group members will be read when the first request for user membership will be made
