Active Directory Integration Guide
OverviewThe Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (or LDAP) is a method of accessing an Active Directory (AD) over an IP network. It's commonly used to authenticate users on a corporate network when they login to their computer/workstation.
Self-Hosted editions of our MIDAS room booking system (v4.06 or later) offer seamless Single Sign-On (SSO) support through LDAP integration with your Active Directory. This allows users to be automatically logged into your room booking software whenever they access MIDAS through their web browser.
The basic process is as follows...
|Stage 1||Stage 2||Stage 3||Stage 4||Stage 5|
|User opens their browser and navigates to MIDAS||The browser sends the logged in user's username to your MIDAS system||MIDAS queries your Active Directory to retrieve the user's real name, email address and Primary Group||User is added (or updated) in MIDAS using permissions from the User Group having a corresponding name as the user's Primary Group in the AD||User is seamlessly logged into MIDAS|
