[Koha] Multiple LDAPs

The Net::LDAP module does support multiple targets, but nobody has
implemented this in Koha, to my knowledge. Your main consideration should
be namespace collision. Before attempting what you describe you have to
guarantee that the usernames would never overlap between various LDAP
targets. This seems unlikely to have been designed in, since it would have
been easier to consolidate the servers than to coordinate separate ones in
Your best bet is to construct an LDAP proxy server with the behavior you
want, and then use Koha with the proxy as the sole target.

My library serves multiple institutions, and we have valid library patrons
coming to us who are authenticated against different LDAP servers. I
remember seeing somewhere, briefly, in some Koha documentation, something
about support for multiple LDAPs, but when I try to find it again, or any
kind of example on how to set it up, I turn up nothing.
We’d want the system to behave something like this:
1. Check first LDAP; if patron authenticates, end. Else:
2. Check second LDAP; if patron authenticates, end. Else:
3. Either check a third LDAP, or just use the internal Koha login
authentication (can one mix and match LDAP auth and Koha DB auth?).
4. Ultimately reject if not in any of the above sources
Does the existing code support this, or would a modification need to be
made? If it already does, how can I go about setting it up? If it doesn’t,
where in the code should I look to make the enhancement?
Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
