LDAP Configuration/Tech

Post by phatsaqs »

Hi,

I have a requirement to enable authentication into the LMS via smart cards. I'm assuming this is possible by enabling LDAP in some capacity but i'm not sure. Can anyone please assist with the matter? A tech draft with details on how the forma LDAP works from a coding standpoint would also be very helpful.

Greatly appreciated.

for LDAP authetication you need an LDAP server as an openLDAP or a MS Active Directory .
the forma.lms server must be able to connect to the LDAP server / port
when you configure the LDAP , forma turn off the interrnal authetication and all users are autheticated through the LDAP
