Hi there,

I've setup the Dashboard Server for Authentication with Active Directory however when I tried logging in with the Active Directory details it gives a login error. I finally figured that you need to import the user into Syncfusion Dashboard and that resolved the issue.

Is there a way for Active directory authentication without having the need to import the user into the Dashboard Server and having the Dashboard Server authenticate directly with Active Directory?

Thanks

Hi Yaseen, 

Thanks for using Syncfusion products. 

We already have plan to implement this feature and it will be available in our upcoming Dashboard Server Release expected in the month of Jan 2018.

Hi,


Is this feature on track for Jan 2018?

Also, is there a plan to implement an LDAP Query against Active Directory to restrict adding users from a particular OU Group.
Our searches are timing out because of the size of our Active Directory.

UPDATE: If we could restrict searching based on the Distinguished Name it would help but this field does not accept the dot ('.') character.
CN=TestCN is accepted but CN=Test.CN throws the error 'Invalid Distinguished Name'.

Thanks

Yes, the feature will be completed and you can expect in our upcoming Dashboard Server release.

Now, we don’t have a support to restrict searching users from a particular OU Group.   
   
“Invalid Distinguished Name” error occurs due to the client-side validation in the active directory settings page.   
Follow the below steps to fix in your Dashboard server installed machine,   
   
  1. Download the below link and extract the “zip” file.
  1. Copy the “Administration.cshtml” from the extracted one and replace it in the below location,
              C:\Syncfusion\Dashboard Server\DashboardServer.Web\Views\Administration   
  1. Then refresh the page and provide the Active Directory Settings and check.
   
Now you can search the users based on your distinguished name.
