Openshift and GroupSync from LDAP

OpenShift offers a variety of possible integrations into security providers. The integration is divided into authentication and authorization. Authentication is handled by one of the configurable IdentityProviders of OpenShift. While authorization is handled by importing groups into OpenShift. For importing groups the most used method is reading from an LDAP (or an Active Directory via its LDAP interface). OpenShift already has a synchronization tool for this type of synchronization. And as long as that tool is sufficient, there are more reasons to stay with that tool than to replace it. But there are some situations where you need to replace it. And here the base software I written and published to github project klenkes74/openshift-ldapsync.
