Before configuring LDAP Authentication with auto-provisioning, it is highly recommended that you first decide which LDAP attributes you want to map to your VidyoPortal user account attributes. These mapping decisions become your LDAP auto-provisioning scheme during the Edit Attributes Mapping step in the following procedure. For more information, see Understanding LDAP authentication with auto-provisioning and Understanding the VidyoPortal user account attributes (LDAP).


To configure LDAP authentication with auto-provisioning:

  1. Log in to the Admin portal using your Admin account.

    For more information, see Logging in to the Admin interface.

    The Users page displays by default.

  2. Click the Settings tab.

    The License page displays by default.

  3. Click Authentication on the left menu.

    The Authentication page displays.

  4. Configure your VidyoPortal to user your LDAP server.

    For more information, see Configuring your VidyoPortal tenant to use your LDAP server.

  5. Select the LDAP Attributes Mapping checkbox.

    The Edit Attributes Mapping and Test Attributes Mapping buttons display.

  6. Click Edit Attributes Mapping.

    The LDAP Attributes Mapping pop-up displays.

    An example of the LDAP Attributes Mapping pop-up with data looks like the following:

    You should spend some time analyzing your VidyoPortal user account attributes in order to decide which LDAP attributes you want to associate with them before actually making the configurations in the LDAP Attributes Mapping pop-up. For more information, see Understanding LDAP authentication with auto-provisioning and Understanding the VidyoPortal user account attributes (LDAP).

    Each row on the LDAP Attributes Mapping pop-up represents an attribute. For each attribute, there is an associated Portal Attribute Name, LDAP Attribute Name, Value mapping (where applicable), and Default Value. These configurations become the rules telling the system what values to populate in specific user account fields when the new account is created.

     

  7. Click Test Attributes Mapping and provide the user account credentials for the account you wish to test as follows only after configuring your LDAP Attributes Mapping:

  8. Type the User Name for the account you wish to test.

  9. Type the Password for the account you wish to test.

  10. Click Submit.

    If successful, the LDAP Attributes Mapping results pop-up displays for the account you wish to test.

  11. Apply authentication to specific user types.

    For more information, see Applying authentication (LDAP or web service) to specific user types.
