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 MIDAS (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 on whenever they open MIDAS.
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 MIDAS||MIDAS queries your AD 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|
