With Connectware version 1.3.0, we have integrated LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) to enhance user authentication and access control. LDAP is an open application protocol for accessing and maintaining directory information services over IP, like Microsoft Active Directory (AD). LDAP is widely used in industries as an authentication and authorization solution.
When an LDAP user logs in to Connectware for the first time, a Connectware user is automatically created and marked as provided by LDAP. You can now easily manage and connect to your directory information services. Depending on the role that is assigned to a user account, each user can have different possibilities to access functions and systems with Connectware.
As the Connectware admin, you can assign roles to streamline the user experience and tailor Connectware access to each user’s needs individually.
Connectware uses two different modes to assign roles to users that are managed by LDAP: Group mode and attribute mode. The Connectware configuration as well as the authorization management for these users differ depending on the selected mode.
LDAP is available to all our Connectware Enterprise license holders.
