Authentication

Configure external authentication.

Authentication specifies an External Identity Store to check login credentials. When this feature is enabled, Iguana will query the External Identity Store first and then revert to using the local Iguana validation if the external validation fails. Using a RESTful web-service to provide authentication enables you to use any type of validation you choose (LDAP, SAML, custom database  etc).

To setup external authentication:

  • Check Use External Authentication
  • Enter the External Authentication URL
  • Click Save

See the How do I use External Identity Store for Authentication FAQ for more information on how this works, and a sample HTTPS Translator script that performs validation.

Warning: You must use a web service (http:// or https://), a direct LDAP link (like ldap://10.211.55.4:6544/checkLogin) does not work.
