    server: {
      host: 'localhost',
      port: 8383,
      useSSL: true
    },
    ...
  }));
  • server: Akera.io settings. These are passed directly to akera-api connect method. See its documentation for all available options.
    • host: Akera.io application server host name or ip address, e.g. localhost
    • port: Akera.io application server port number, e.g. cn='root'
    • useSSL: Akera.io application server SSL connection flag
  • usernameField: Field name where the user name is found, defaults to username
  • passwordField: Field name where the password is found, defaults to password
  • passReqToCallback: When true, req is the first argument to the verify callback (default: false):

      passport.use(new LdapStrategy(..., function(req, user, done) {
          ...
          done(null, user);
        }
      ));
    

Note: you can pass a function instead of an object as options, see the example below

  • badRequestMessage: missing username/password (default: 'Missing credentials')

var OPTS = {
  server: {
    host: 'localhost',
    port: '8383',
    useSSL: true
  }
