When logging into Monyog from the browser interface you may use authentication provided by LDAP server (including the Microsoft/Windows LDAP 'dialect' known as 'Active Directory'). In this case users will need not to know Monyog authentication details directly, but only how to authenticate to the LDAP server. To use LDAP authentication for Monyog, specify settings as below:
- Click Settings > LDAP settings. The LDAP Settings page opens.
- Host: Enter the hostname, IP address or URI (Uniform resource identifier) of your LDAP directory server.
- Encryption: Select the type of encryption required for communication with the LDAP directory server. Supported encryption methods are None, StartTLS, and SSL(ldaps).
- Port: Type in the port your LDAP directory server uses.
- LDAP server allows anonymous binds: Select this option if your LDAP directory server allows anonymous binds to the server.
- User DN: Enter the distinguished name of the entry to bind to the LDAP directory server.
- Password: Enter the password of the User DN specified for binding the user to LDAP directory server.
- Test Settings: Clicking on Test Settings will use the mentioned User DN and Password and binds with the LDAP directory server.
- Authentication mode: Select the type of authentication mode to use for authenticating the user with the LDAP directory server. Bind as User binds user to LDAP directory with the password provided at login in Monyog’s interface. Authentication via Comparison is done by comparing the user credentials provided at login with the LDAP directory.
- User search base: Type in the User search base filter for the object class you want to filter your users for authentication.
- User search attribute: Enter the attribute name that contains the user name.
- Search entire subtree: This option controls the search for objects specified in user search base . Selecting this option will search the entire subtree of User search base.
