Active Directory Integration

Asked by Fredrick Ward

I would like to utilize LDAP logon instead of database logon support. Is there some way to implement this without performing a significant rewrite into version 1.6.4

Hi Fredrick,

We haven't figured that out yet to be honest - there was some preliminary support for LDAP a long time ago, but as Xibo advanced that integration was left behind.

To implement it you would be looking at replacing modules/module_user_general.php with a file for LDAP that acted as a bridge between the user records in Xibo and the directories in LDAP.

You'd probably want to split the existing file into a base class that did the DB lookups and provided interfaces for authentication. Then extending to provide the general and LDAP look ups.

There are a bunch of notes about it here:

If this is something you want added immediately you might need to sponsor it (or write it yourself).


Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask Fredrick Ward for more information if necessary.
