Apache Svn with Active Directory authentication

Postby rocknum » 2016-05-19 09:29

Hello there

I had the task of creating a svn server with active directory authentication on linux.
The users connect to the repo using Tortoise Svn.
I have successfully integrated active directory groups for authentication on the repos.

I can set access permissions to different groups to different repos.

The problem is that all the members of the group that has access, have Read/Write access to a repo.
I wish to grant Read Only rights to some groups but I have not been able to do this.

The repos are defined in /etc/apache2/mods-available/dav-svn.conf

The definition of a repo looks like this.

Code: Select all
<Location /svn/mysvnrepo>

    DAV svn
    SVNPath /var/lib/svn/mysvnrepo
    SVNListparentPath on
    SVNAutoversioning on
    AuthType Basic

    SVNReposName "Repotest"
    AuthName “mysvnrepo”

    AuthBasicProvider ldap
    AuthLDAPURL "ldap://,DC=local?sAMAccountName?sub?(objectClass=*)"


    Require ldap-group CN=test,OU=tests,OU=S test,DC=example,DC=local


    AuthLDAPBindDN "CN=svn bind,OU=tests,OU=S test,DC=example,DC=local"
    AuthLDAPBindPassword somepasswd

I really need to grant some groups Read Only access. Right now everybody has either full access or no access.

Thank you
