Enterprise Edition (Legacy)


This page contains the documentation of the legacy Enterprise Edition.

Migrate to Professional Edition

Upgrading from the Enterprise Edition to the Professional Edition is unproblematic. However due to many changes from version 1.3.X to version 1.4, it requires some effort. If you follow these steps, you should get this done with ease:

  1. Create a BACKUP of you installation an your database IN EVERY CASE

  2. Update to the latest HumHub and "Enterprise Edition" module available (Administration -> Modules)

  3. Active your Professional Edition license key (Administration -> Information -> "Upgrade to Professional Edition")

  4. Switch to the default theme named HumHub (Administration -> Settings -> Appearance)

  5. If you're using any Enterprise Edition features, which require a config file entry e.g. SOLR search or JWT SSO, either comment those parts out or remove them completely.

  6. Disable and uninstall the module "Humhub Enterprise Edition"

  7. Use to HumHub Marketplace (Administration -> Modules -> Browse online) to install and activate the HumHub - Professional Edition features you want to use e.g. Enterprise Theme or Advanced Ldap.

  8. Revert to your usual Theme (Administration -> Settings -> Appearance)

  9. Some Professional Edition modules like SOLR search or JWT SSO may require updates to the configuration. You will find detailed instructions each module in our Marketplace

Theme Customization

Note: This chapter only describes the differences between the standard theming and the Enterprise Edition.

** Create custom Enterprise theme copy **

The original enterprise theme is typically located at: protected/modules/enterprise/themes/enterprise

You can simply copy this folder to e.g. themes/MyEnterprise and activate it in the administration menu.

** Before LESS compilation **

To (re-)build your themes less files, make sure to modify the path variables @HUMHUB and @ENTERPRISE in the file e.g. themes/MyEnterprise/less/build.less before.

  • @HUMHUB - the absolute system path to the directory e.g. /var/www/humhub/static/less
  • @ENTERPRISE - the absolute system path to the enterprise edition directory e.g. /var/www/humhub/protected/modules/enterprise

** Additional LESS variables **

  • @ee-sidebar-width - the width of the left sidebar (defaults to: 250px)
  • '@ee-sidebar-elements-color' - the secondary color which is used for icons and space type titles

Note: Your theme might need to be migrated if a new HumHub or enterprise version comes out. This will not affect your custom themes thus your theme views might overwrite essential changes made in the HumHub views. To migrate your theme check the differences between your custom theme files (views, js, less) and the enterprise default theme files and adopt necessary changes.

Space Types

Space types allows you to separate spaces into different categories (e.g. Department Spaces or Project Spaces).

Space Types

Define Space Types

You can create new space types at: Administration -> Spaces -> Types

Restrict Space Creation

It's also possible to restrict Space creation by user groups.

You can define these permission at: Administration -> User -> Groups -> Select group -> Permissions

The HumHub Enterprise Edition provides some advanced LDAP features.

User Mapping

You can assign user's group or space memberships automatically using LDAP configuration.

The mapping can be used by:

  • User LDAP group memberships (memberOf field, e.g. CN=xyz_space_access,OU=Groups,DC=example,DC=com)
  • The part of the users base DN (e.g. OU=People,DC=example,DC=com)
  • Attribute values (e.g. street==Some Street or street=~Street)

Note: The mapping is handled by the hourly cron job and may takes some time to affect.

Space Mapping

As administrative user, you can map a LDAP group directly to a space.

Configuration page: Open Space -> Members -> LDAP

Space LDAP Mapping

Group Mapping

As administrative user, you can map a LDAP group against HumHub groups which are mainly used for administrative tasks.
