LDAP Authentication

Overview

When using LDAP Authentication in Bizagi, credentials entered in the login page (username, password and domain) are sent to an LDAP Server for verification.

Once the server verifies and permits the access, login is successful as long as this user is already created in Bizagi.

In this authentication, passwords are never stored in Bizagi.

Setting LDAP Authentication

To set LDAP as the authentication type, select LDAP from the drop-down list:

 

Authentication_LDAP

 

Click on the Update button.

The following options presented as inner items must be configured:

 

LDAP URL: Corresponds to the path to access the LDAP Server (using the LDAP URL format).

 

Authentication_and_Security2_Image028

 

 

Use settings in LDAP synchronization: Applies if you already have configured Bizagi to synchronize your Active Directory users into Bizagi.

If this is the scenario, turn this option on, to use the same LDAP URL and settings from the LDAP synchronization settings.

When this option is on, the value of the former option will be ignored.

 

Authentication_and_Security2_Image029

 

 

note_pin

Windows Active Directory is supported as for LDAP authentication.

 

Note that it is necessary that the Web site configuration at the Server (i.e IIS), uses Anonymous authentication for the Work Portal.

 

 

Importing LDAP Users

For any type of authentication, you will need to ensure that users are created at Bizagi Work portal.

Disregarding the selected Authentication type for your Work Portal login, you may choose to configure a schedule in Bizagi to import and synchronize users from your LDAP Server into Bizagi.

For more information about this option, refer to Importing LDAP Users.
