Authenticate through Active Directory


Authenticate users through Active Directory and retrieve associated groups to determine user permission. We assume that:

  1. Domain of the Active Directory is
  2. This Active Directory can be accessed through address ldap://
  3. Users and groups are managed under LDAP entry cn=Users,dc=example,dc=com.
  4. User Administrator is used to search user and group information in this Active Directory.


  1. For each Active Directory group you want to assign QuickBuild permissions, create a group with the same name in QuickBuild, and set proper permissions.
  2. Login as Administrator, switch to menu Authentication->Authenticators, and add an authenticator of LDAP type like below:
  3. Your users should now be able to login to QuickBuild and access to QuickBuild functionalities will be controlled using the group information from Active Directory.
To browse Active Directory user and group information in a LDAP friendly way (that is, be able to browse DN and various attribute names/values), you may need to install a LDAP client (such as JXplorer), and connect it to your Active Directory using LDAP url, user and password information listed above.
