This LDAP Authentication method requires you to manually create user accounts on your tenant. The user attributes can be manually changed and configured; however, only the password is verified against your LDAP server configured in the previous section.
To configure LDAP authentication with manual user creation:
- Log in to the Admin portal using your Admin account.
For more information, see Logging in to the Tenant Admin Portal.
The Users page displays by default.
- Click the Settings tab.
The License page displays by default.
- Click Authentication on the left menu.
The Authentication page displays.
- Configure your VidyoPortal to use your LDAP server.
For more information, see Configuring Your VidyoPortal Tenant to Use Your LDAP Server.
- Create user accounts manually on your tenant. User accounts can be added at any time.
For more information, see Adding New Users or Importing Users.
When you create a new user with LDAP authentication enabled, the user name must match the user name configured on your LDAP server. For more information, see the Filter template field explained in Configuring Your VidyoPortal Tenant to Use Your LDAP Server.
When creating new users, passwords are mandatory; however, when you enable LDAP, the password in the local database is not used to authenticate the user. When LDAP authentication is enabled, the User and Admin portals do not provide Change or Forgot Password options.
- Apply authentication to specific user types.
For more information, see Applying Authentication (LDAP or Web Service) to Specific User Types.
- Click Save.
