Abstract

This document describes the stoney core relevant OpenLDAP directory data organisation.

Introduction

Data Organisation

Administration

The subtree ou=administration,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org contains all the administrative data.

nextfreeuid

The entry cn=nextfreeuid,ou=administration,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org stores the next free UID (Unique Identifier). The UID is unique over the whole directory and is enforced through the directory and is incremented by one.

dn: cn=nextfreeuid,ou=administration,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org
objectclass: sstNextFreeUID
cn: nextfreeuid
uid: 3724591
uidNumber: 3724591

Before using this attribute uidNumber, you need to be sure, that your directory server actually supports atomic increments (LDAP Modify-Increment). See Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Parameters and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Modify-Increment Extension (RFC4525).

The following search should tell you, if you LDAP server supports the LDAP Modify-Increment Object Identifier Descriptor (OID 1.3.6.1.1.14):

ldapsearch -H ldaps://ldapm.stepping-stone.ch -b "" -s base -D "cn=Manager,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org" -W \* + | grep 1.3.6.1.1.14
supportedFeatures: 1.3.6.1.1.14

Options:

-H ldapuri
-b searchbase
-D binddn
-W Prompt for simple authentication.
\* All user attributes are returned. 
+  All operational attributes are returned.

Billing

The sub tree ou=billing,ou=administration,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org stores all the billing relevant data. Each billable item (bundle, service or service item) is stored in this sub tree.

dn: ou=billing,ou=administration,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org
objectclass: top
objectclass: organizationalUnit
ou: billing

The following LDIF extract shows the billing schema for the product "Mail Account".

dn: uid=100001,ou=billing,ou=administration,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org
description: Default pricing schema for the product Mail Account.
objectclass: top
objectclass: sstBillingPriceSchema
sstbaseprice: 0
sstbelongstouid: 1
sstbillingunit: Gigabyte
sstfreeunit: 0
sstpriceformula: sstPricePerUnit * sstQuota
sstpriceperunit: 4.00
sstproductname: Mail Account
uid: 100001
sstBelongsToUID: 1

The finale price is calculated with the help of the stored formula (sstPriceFormula). The customer price for a "Mail Account" with a 2 Gigabyte large mailbox (quota) is calculated as follows: Price = sstPricePerUnit * sstQuota = 4.00 CHF/(Gigabyte * Month) * 2 Gigabyte = 8 CHF/Month

All prices are stored in Swiss Francs (because the company stepping stone GmbH resides in Switzerland). You can decide about the default currency yourself. Once a month a billing run is executed, which scans the whole directory. The billing run is a currently "work in progress". For more information, please contact our Accounting departement.

Group Mapping

Used for the group mapping from the given readable format to the local group UID format.

dn: ou=group mapping,ou=administration,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org
objectclass: top
objectclass: organizationalUnit
objectclass: labeledURIObject
objectclass: sstLDAPSearchObjectClass
ou: group mapping
description: This entry describes, how to map a given group name to an UID in the local LDAP directory.
sstDisplayName: Group Mapping
sstLDAPBaseDn: ou=groups,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org
sstLDAPFilter: (&(objectClass=sstGroupObjectClass)(sstGroupName=%s)(sstBelongsToResellerUID=%sstBelongsToResellerUID)(sstBelongsToCustomerUID=%sstBelongsToCustomerUID))
sstLDAPStaticAttribute: uid

Example Mapping for the Technology Group

The following search maps the group Technology belonging to the reseller with the sstBelongsToResellerUID 4000000 and the customer with the sstBelongsToCustomerUID 4000001 to the uid 4000014:

ldapsearch -D "cn=Manager,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org" -w admin -H "ldap://10.1.130.14:389" -b "ou=groups,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org" "(&(objectClass=sstGroupObjectClass)(sstGroupName=Technology)(sstBelongsToResellerUID=4000000)(sstBelongsToCustomerUID=4000001))" uid
# extended LDIF
#
# LDAPv3
# base <ou=groups,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org> with scope subtree
# filter: (&(objectClass=sstGroupObjectClass)(sstGroupName=Technology)(sstBelongsToResellerUID=4000000)(sstBelongsToCustomerUID=4000001))
# requesting: uid 
#

# 4000014, groups, stoney-cloud.org
dn: uid=4000014,ou=groups,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org
uid: 4000014

# search result
search: 2
result: 0 Success

# numResponses: 2
# numEntries: 1

Example Mapping for all Groups

The following search lists all the existing Groups to belonging to the reseller with the sstBelongsToResellerUID 4000000 and the customer with the sstBelongsToCustomerUID 4000001 with the corresponding uids:

ldapsearch -D "cn=Manager,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org" -w admin -H "ldap://10.1.130.14:389" -b "ou=groups,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org" "(&(objectClass=sstGroupObjectClass)(sstGroupName=*)(sstBelongsToResellerUID=4000000)(sstBelongsToCustomerUID=4000001))" uid
# extended LDIF
#
# LDAPv3
# base <ou=groups,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org> with scope subtree
# filter: (&(objectClass=sstGroupObjectClass)(sstGroupName=*)(sstBelongsToResellerUID=4000000)(sstBelongsToCustomerUID=4000001))
# requesting: uid 
#

# 4000014, groups, stoney-cloud.org
dn: uid=4000014,ou=groups,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org
uid: 4000014

# 4000015, groups, stoney-cloud.org
dn: uid=4000015,ou=groups,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org
uid: 4000015

# search result
search: 2
result: 0 Success

# numResponses: 3
# numEntries: 2

People (Superuser)

The sub tree ou=people,ou=administration,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org list all users, which have super user richts (users with the attribute sstBelongsToUID=1). This entry uses the functionality of the the dynlist overlay. The attribut labeleduri contains a pre-defined search, which leads to a automatically created list.

dn: ou=people,ou=administration,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org
objectclass: top
objectclass: organizationalUnit
objectclass: labeledURIObject
ou: people
labeleduri: ldap:///ou=people,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org??one?(sstBelongsToUID=1)
member: uid=1000000,ou=people,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org
member: uid=1000003,ou=people,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org
member: uid=1000004,ou=people,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org

As you can see, the OpenLDAP has three people withe Superuser rights.

Services

The sub tree ou=services,ou=administration,dc=stoney-cloud,dc=org contains all the service users. Each service and/or application has its own authentication user. The authentication user is used in the OpenLDAP Directory Access Control Lists (ACLs) to allow or restrict access to the data.

  • sstAllowResellerUID: Stores the reseller UID(s) that are allowed access to this leaf. If set to 0 (zero), all resellers have access.
  • sstAllowCustomerUID: Stores the customer UID(s) that are allowed access to this leaf. If set to 0 (zero), all customers belonging to the allowed resellers have access.
  • sstAllowPersonUID: Stores the person UID(s) that are allowed access to this leaf. If set to 0 (zero), all people belonging to the allowed resellers and the allowed customers have access.

All hierarchical levels must have sstBillable: TRUE to actually have an invoice generated and sent. If the attribute sstBillable doesn't exist, the default is TRUE.
