Learn how to log in using LDAP authentication

Updated over a week ago

For authentication settings, you must have "Administrator" access rights or have access to the "Authentication" section 🔒. Contact your system manager to learn more about your access rights.

If LDAP authentication is used, users will be able to log in using their LDAP username and password only. Local login with email and password will be disabled and users who do not have their LDAP login field filled in will not be able to log in to their account.

LDAP, or Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, is an open communication protocol that defines methods where a directory service can be accessed. For example, such a solution can be Active Directory.

With this option, the user will be prompted to enter their username and password from your LDAP directory when logging into their account. If the user has multiple accounts, they will be able to choose which account within your system they want to log in to.

In PeopleForce, go to Settings > Authentications > select LDAP Authentication and fill in the required fields.

In user profiles, fill in the AD Username field that appears (it will be available only after LDAP configuration)

In order for the user to have several profiles available when logging in, he needs to fill in the login field in each profile. By default, the LDAP login field for all users must be unique. To enable support for multiple accounts for one employee, please contact us via live chat.
