Active Directory Support
Active Directory LDAP Authentication Module allows for you to use user credentials stored in your directory service to log into UCView’s ViewEdge Server
Active Directory LDAP Authentication Module Overview
Enabling Active Directory LDAP Authentication Module allows for you to use user credentials stored in your directory service to log into UCView’s ViewEdge Server. A new UCView user account is created for a user upon their first login to UCView.
You can enable and configure LDAP authentication in the System area of your server (System > LDAP Setting):
Configuring LDAP Authentication Module
To add and enable LDAP Authentication module:
1. Open System > LDAP Setting Tab
2. Click Enable LDAP checkbox to enable LDAP.
3. LDAP Host IP: Type in the URL for your LDAP Server in the format.
4. Use encrypted connection: Check this box to use an encrypted connection with the server
5. LDAP Host Port: Specify your Active directory host port (default is 389)
6. LDAP Domain: Enter your LDAP domain name
7. LDAP Admin Name: Enter User with LDAP management administration permissions
8. LDAP Admin Password: Enter LDAP Admin Password

Once it’s done, users can use their LDAP credentials to log in to UCView.
Configuring Creating Users and Joining User Groups Parameters
Each authentication module has two settings that define how UCView processes the new users who log in with their LDAP credentials.
Create Users — when a user logs in with LDAP credentials, UCView will check if an account with the same email address already exists, and if not, then a new user account will be created.
Auto-join groups — you can create a list of user groups to which new users created with LDAP credentials will automatically be added.
Department assignment - you can assign Active directory department with UCView’s Department to control permission and limit access to locations and functions.
1. Create a New Department or use Main Department.
2. Under Active connection: Check the box to enable department authentication.
3. LDAP department name: Enter Active directory department name from your active directory.
4. Click Show Members: To list all the users from this department.
