Configuring LDAP on ReviewBaord

If you are looking at this post, you would have already installed reviewboard and are facing issues configuring LDAP on it.

For others who landed here by chance:
Review Board is a powerful web-based code review tool that offers developers an easy way to handle code reviews. It scales well from small projects to large companies and offers a variety of tools to take much of the stress and time out of the code review process.
You can checkout reviewboard @

Now comming to the topic, reviewboard asks for the following LDAP settings:

LDAP Server : ldap://<your server ip>:389 (By convention this can be : ldap://ldap.<your company name>.<com|net|org>:389)

LDAP Base DN (Used to perform LDAP searches) : Should generally be composed of OU & DC. For ex:- OU=users,OU=<US|Canada|AsiaPac|Japan>,OU=<(Engineering|Eng)|(Finance|Fin)),DC=<yourcompanydomain>,DC=<com|net|org>
example1: OU=users,OU=AsiaPac,OU=Eng,DC=GooG,DC=com
example2: OU=users,DC=CSCO,DC=com

User Mask: (sAMAccountName=%s) (This should generally do the trick if not try CN=%s or UID=%S. You can also refer to for more information)

If your LDAP server allows anonymous users to query then you can leave
Anonymous User Mask : <blank>
Anonymous User Passwrod: <blank>

if not then you may need to ask your network admin to create a team/group id which can browse LDAP server. But if you want to check if everything is configured well you can use your login credentials here.
Anonymous User Mask : <domain>\<your user name>
Anonymous User Passwrod: <your password>

DN : Distinguished Name
CN : Common Name
DC : Domain Component
SN : Surname
mail : mail
