LDAP Integration, Authentication & Authorization

LDAP stands for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, and allows usage of single user account directory to login to various applications. LDAP integration allows your knowledge base instance to use your existing LDAP server as the master source of user data. PHPKB Knowledge Base Software supports LDAP integration and authentication with several LDAP providers displayed below.

LDAP Providers

The Enterprise Edition of PHPKB provides seamless integration with LDAP for single sign on (SSO) support. With LDAP Authentication in place, your knowledge base administrator won't need to create a separate account for each user - just connect to LDAP server, map LDAP directory groups to PHPKB groups, and retrieve users with full account information in one click. As well as LDAP integration, user account details can be synced and LDAP groups can be mapped with PHPKB groups for role-based permissions.

LDAP Authentication

The Enterprise edition of PHPKB knowledge base software includes complete support for LDAP integration and authentication with the following LDAP providers:

  • Microsoft Active Directory
  • Novell eDirectory
  • Open LDAP
  • Posix Account RFC2307
  • Posix Account PFC2307BIS
  • Samba
  • Sun ONE Directory Server

LDAP integration is configured from the 'Manage Settings' page in the PHPKB admin control panel as shown in the screenshot below.
