Authenticating APIs with Active Directory
Active Directory is a directory services solution developed by Microsoft that is commonly used for enterprise identity management. Developers desiring to incorporate Active Directory authentication into API-based authentication workflows can do so in just minutes using the DreamFactory Platform.
In addition to offering support for Active Directory-based API authentication, DreamFactory can map Active Directory groups to roles in order to ensure users are assigned appropriate API restrictions according to their responsibilities. If you'd like to learn more about DreamFactory's group-to-role mapping capabilities, see the documentation Mapping Roles to AD Groups,
Active Directory is just one of several authentication schemes supported by DreamFactory, including LDAP, basic authentication, SAML, OAuth, and OpenID. All of these schemes can easily be configured within DreamFactory's web-based administration console. Once configured, integrating LDAP-based authentication into your DreamFactory-backed application workflow is a snap.
