I'm trying to accomplish getting SmarterTrack to allow Active Directory authentication for my users. I understand this is supported via the "External Providers" settings in SmarterTrack. I've read over:
And I'm unable to get it to work. My immediate question is what is the format of the LDAP string that is expected for SmarterTrack to do this? I've tried as many different formats as I can think or / the documentation / nomenclature brings to mind -- the one thing I can't seem to wrap my head around is how authentication to the DC happens in the fields provided.
My previous experience working with LDAP indications that something like:
LDAP://DC.DOMAIN.ORG/OU=UsersOU,DC=DOMAIN,DC=ORG should do the trick IF there are lines for username / password to work. It doesn't for me.
I even started down the route of Active Directory Web Services and played around with the:
net.tcp: //dc_server_name:9389/ActiveDirectoryWebServices/Windows/ User/
Nomenclature / Connection String options but I felt like I was getting farther and father away at a point. Also, on the same machine another application is connecting to Active Directory and reading Users information fine.
Any direction on the proper syntax / settings to get Active Directory authentication working would be much appreciated.
I also tried the format:
And the password for the user in the Web Services Password to no luck.
