In release 6.2, we have integrated with Microsoft Active Directory. The following diagram provides an overview of the integration.
Indeni sends all login requests to Active Directory to process. It does not store the usernames and credentials locally.
Since many organizations have already created user groups and stored them in Active Directory. The user’s LDAP group membership determines if the user is authorized to access Indeni. Indeni determines what LDAP groups the user belongs to with a simple search. Indeni verifies that the user belongs to one of the authorized LDAP groups and grants access accordingly.
ConfigurationEnabling LDAP is simple, follow these steps:
Click on the settings tab on the left menu of Indeni
Click on “Authentication” as shown below
As part of the setup, Indeni will retrieve the list of LDAP groups from Active Directory.
Select the LDAP group(s) of users who will need access to Indeni. Any changes made in the LDAP group members are automatically reflected in Indeni, without having to change the LDAP setup.
For more information, please refer to the Indeni 6.x User Guide - LDAP.
