With Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), network administrators and users have access to directory data. In AD DS, for instance, a user's name, password, phone number, and so on, is stored and enabled for other authorized users on the same network to access. Active Directory stores information about network objects and makes it easy to find and use this information for administrators and users. Based on a hierarchical, logical structure, Active Directory organizes directory information by using a structured data store.
miniOrange provides user authentication from various external sources, which can be Directories (like ADFS, Microsoft Active Directory, Azure AD, OpenLDAP, Google, AWS Cognito etc), Identity Providers (like Okta, Shibboleth, Ping, OneLogin, KeyCloak), Databases (like MySQL, Maria DB, PostgreSQL) and many more.
Given below are the steps to configure AD as User Store & connect it with miniorange broker to single sign-on into using SAML protocol.
Here's the list of the attributes and what it does when we enable it. You can enable/disable accordingly.
|Activate LDAP||All user authentications will be done with LDAP credentials if you Activate it|
|Sync users in miniOrange||Users will be created in miniOrange after authentication with LDAP|
|Backup Authentication||If LDAP credentials fail then user will be authenticated through miniOrange|
|Allow users to change password||This allows your users to change their password. It updates the new credentials in your LDAP server|
|Enable administrator login||On enabling this, your miniOrange Administrator login authenticates using your LDAP server|
|Show IdP to users||If you enable this option, this IdP will be visible to users|
|Send Configured Attributes||If you enable this option, then only the attributes configured below will be sent in attributes at the time of login|
Refer our guide to setup LDAPS on windows server.
(The Active Directory Group Provisioning (Sync) setup is done. Now, whenever a user is created or modified in LDAP server and if the Assign Users to groups is enabled, then user group attribute from the LDAP server will be automatically synced and the user group will be assigned or changed accordingly in miniOrange.)
If you have already configured your application in miniOrange you can skip the following steps.
|Service Provider Name||Choose appropriate name according to your choice|
|SP Entity ID or Issuer||Your Application Entity ID|
|ACS URL X.509 Certificate (optional)||Your Application Assertion Consumer Service URL|
|NameID Format||Select urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:1.1:nameid-format:emailAddress|
|Client Name||Add appropriate Name|
|Redirect URL||Get the Redirect-URL from your OAuth Client|
|Descrption||Add if required|
|Policy Name||As per your Choice|
Note: Choose the Authorization Endpoint according to the identity source you configure.
In case you are setting up SSO with Mobile Applications where you can't create an endpoint for Redirect or Callback URL, use below URL.
