From the Auth Policies screen, click 'Create' and select 'LDAP' as the Authentication Type.
The following LDAP Authentication methods are supported in FeedHenry:
The URL field is the address of your LDAP server, e.g. ldap://foo.example.com:389. Note that '389' is the standard LDAP port.
The 'Distinguished Name (dn) prefix' field is the prefix for the full user DN. The format of a Users full DN required for Authentication is typically:
<prefix><user>,<dn>, e.g. "uid=fred,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com".
The prefix is typically 'cn' for Active Directory or 'uid' for Open LDAP. Consult with your LDAP Administrator for what this setting should be. Note that this can also be blank, it is not a mandatory setting.
The 'Distinguished Name (dn)' field can be used to provide the full directory path to the user, e.g. the 'ou=people,dc=example,dc=com' in the example above. Again, this can be blank, consult with your LDAP Administrator regarding this setting.
Here are some sample instructions for how to Authenticate Users against your Active Directory (AD) server:
First, your server needs to be accessible from the FeedHenry Cloud. For private FeedHenry deploys this is usually not an issue as all services will be behind the same firewall. For public FeedHenry cloud, you will either need to set up a VPN for us to access your AD Server, you will need to contact us to discuss this. Alternatively, ensure your AD Server is publicly accessible.
Next, create an Auth Policy and specify the following values:
