Configuration

Configure mongodb data connector

In $IDP_CONFIG_DIR/attribute-resolver.xml, add namespace and xsd schema to the root element:

xmlns:uid="http://dev.unitedid.org/NS/mongodb-connector
http://dev.unitedid.org/NS/mongodb-connector classpath:/schema/mongodb-connector.xsd

                                       http://dev.unitedid.org/NS/mongodb-connector classpath:/schema/mongodb-connector.xsd">

Also in $IDP_CONFIG_DIR/attribute-resolver.xml, add the mongodb connector

    <!-- ========================================== -->
    <!--      Data Connectors                       -->
    <!-- ========================================== -->

    <!-- Mongodb connector -->
    <resolver:DataConnector id="myMongo" xsi:type="uid:MongoDbDataConnector"
                            mongoDbName="your_database_name"
                            mongoCollection="your_collection_name">

      <!-- Database server to connect to, multiple entries allowed for use with master/slave or replica sets -->                      
      <uid:MongoHost host="server1.example.com" port="27017" />
      <!-- 
      <uid:MongoHost host="server2.example.com" port="27017" />
      <uid:MongoHost host="server3.example.com" port="27017" />
      -->

      <!-- The database query in JSON format -->
      <uid:QueryTemplate>
        <![CDATA[
            { 'username' : '$requestContext.principalName' }
        ]]>
      </uid:QueryTemplate>
      
      <!-- Example attribute mappings between a mongodb field to attributeID -->
      <!--
      <uid:AttributeMap mongoKey="username" attributeID="uid" />
      <uid:AttributeMap mongoKey="email" attributeID="mail" />
      -->
      <!-- Example how to map embedded HashMap fields to an attributeID -->
      <!--
      <uid:AttributeMap mongoKey="address">
        <uid:ValueMap mongoKey="address1" attributeID="homePostalAddress" />
        <uid:ValueMap mongoKey="zip" attributeID="postalCode" /> 
      </uid:AttributeMap>
      -->
    </resolver:DataConnector>

Next configure the <resolver:AttributeDefinition...> to depend on the new connector by
adding <resolver:Dependency ref="myMongo" />

    <resolver:AttributeDefinition xsi:type="ad:Scoped" id="eduPersonPrincipalName" scope="example.com" sourceAttributeID="uid">
        <resolver:Dependency ref="myMongo" />
        <resolver:AttributeEncoder xsi:type="enc:SAML1ScopedString" name="urn:mace:dir:attribute-def:eduPersonPrincipalName" />
        <resolver:AttributeEncoder xsi:type="enc:SAML2ScopedString" name="urn:oid:1.3.6.1.4.1.5923.1.1.1.6" friendlyName="eduPersonPrincipalName" />
    </resolver:AttributeDefinition>

(Optional) Configure mongodb persistent ID connector mode

To use mongodb connector for both attribute release and computing persistent ID's two <resolver:DataConnector/>'s are required, one for each mode.

The mongodb persistent ID connector is compatible with computedID and storedID computed ID's.

In $IDP_CONFIG_DIR/attribute-resolver.xml, add the mongodb persistent ID connector

    <resolver:DataConnector id="myMongo2" xsi:type="uid:MongoDbDataConnector"
                            mongoDbName="your_database_name"
                            mongoCollection="shibpid">

      <!-- Resolver dependency needed to resolve 'uid' in sourceAttributeId -->
      <resolver:Dependency ref="myMongo" />

      <!-- Database server to connect to, multiple entries allowed for use with master/slave or replica sets -->                      
      <uid:MongoHost host="server1.example.com" port="27017" />
      <!-- 
      <uid:MongoHost host="server2.example.com" port="27017" />
      <uid:MongoHost host="server3.example.com" port="27017" />
      -->

      <!-- Salt needs to be at least 16 bytes long -->
      <uid:PersistentId generatedAttributeId="persistentID"
                        sourceAttributeId="uid"
                        salt="1234567890abcdefghijklmnopqrst" />
    </resolver:DataConnector>

Also in $IDP_CONFIG_DIR/attribute-resolver.xml, add an attribute definition for persistentID

    <resolver:AttributeDefinition xsi:type="ad:SAML2NameID" id="eduPersonTargetedID"
                                  nameIdFormat="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:nameid-format:persistent" sourceAttributeID="persistentID">
        <resolver:Dependency ref="myMongo2" />
        <resolver:AttributeEncoder xsi:type="enc:SAML1XMLObject" name="urn:oid:1.3.6.1.4.1.5923.1.1.1.10" />
        <resolver:AttributeEncoder xsi:type="enc:SAML2XMLObject" name="urn:oid:1.3.6.1.4.1.5923.1.1.1.10" friendlyName="eduPersonTargetedID" />
    </resolver:AttributeDefinition>

Optional settings for the mongodb connector

cacheResults - Whether to use attribute cache. Accepted values are true or false. Defaults to false.

    <resolver:DataConnector id="myMongo" xsi:type="uid:MongoDbDataConnector"
                            mongoDbName="your_database_name"
                            mongoCollection="your_collection_name"
                            cacheResults="true">

mongoUser - Username used to authenticate against a specific database.

mongoPassword - Password used to authenticate against a specific database.

    <resolver:DataConnector id="myMongo" xsi:type="uid:MongoDbDataConnector"
                            mongoDbName="your_database_name"
                            mongoCollection="your_collection_name"
                            mongoUser="your_username"
                            mongoPassword="your_password">

Logging configuration

In $IDP_CONFIG_DIR/logging.xml, add logging configuration for the mongodb connector :

    <!-- Log mongodb connector related messages -->
    <logger name="org.unitedid.shibboleth" level="INFO" />

Deployment

Backup your IdP configuration before re-deploying the IdP web app

$IDP_INSTALL_DIR/install.sh

Limitations

Currently only support one level deep embedded documents.
