GWME-7.1.1-1 - LDAP Patch

Deprecated - Please install GWME-7.1.1-11 - Foundation update with Advanced LDAP instead.


When groundwork is connected to ldap, there are 30-35 ldap calls made out to the LDAP servers.  This was causing slowness, sometimes up to 5 minutes connection time when opening cacti web interface, and other applications that are not part of the core groundwork product.

This problem has been tracked under GWMON-12850. This patch was designed to be compatible with both 7.1.0 and 7.1.1 and is referred to here GWME-7.1.0-6 - LDAP Patch.


Caching was developed into the code to catch any ldap objects after initial call, this stops any additional calls out to ldap that are not necessary after the initial load.  After putting this change in place, user permission changes will not be affected until a browser session times out or is closed.
