Self Service Password permits users to change their password and SSH public key in an LDAP directory.


What ssp affects

Excepted git, the module does not affect your system. It just download SSP and configure it.

Setup Requirements

The system_owner that own the file of Self Service Password must already exists. The module does not create it.

You have to setup a webserver with PHP. Because we do not want to make choise for you about your architecture.

So you can use apache or nginx, simple PHP or php-FMP.


The following code :

  • download the default version of SSP to the default path.
  • inodes are owned by already existing system account ssp.
  • configure some settings.
  class { 'ssp' :
    system_owner      => 'ssp',
    ldap_binddn       => 'uid=bindssp,cn=sysaccounts,cn=etc,dc=example,dc=com',
    ldap_bindpw       => 'bindpw',
    ldap_base         => 'cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=example,dc=com',
    ldap_whochange_pw => 'manager',
    mail_from         => '',
    manage_git        => true,
    ldap_url          => ['ldap://'],
