That's the one, I would qualify my earlier stamen t to "all public
methods implemented from UserDirectoryProvider"
So the ones that must work:
boolean authenticateUser(String eid, UserEdit edit, String password);
boolean authenticateWithProviderFirst(String eid);
The ones that should return null or false:
boolean findUserByEmail(UserEdit edit, String email);
boolean getUser(UserEdit edit);
void getUsers(Collection<UserEdit> users);
The api docs for UserDirectoryProvider can be found here:

One problem we are having is trying to figure out how to set up authentication and provisioning. What we would like to do is have internal users authenticate through LDAP, but only login if they have an account created in Sakai. Has anyone done this before and, if so, could you provide some guidance as to how to set this up? Please keep in mind we are very new to the system and need a bit of hand holding as we pick the system up. Thanks for your time and consideration.
