Use this guide along with the Data Tab Configuration guide to configure a SecureAuth IdP realm that uses Active Directory (UPN) as an additional Profile Provider.


1. Have an on-premises Active Directory data store

2. A service account with read access (and optional write access) for SecureAuth IdP

Active Directory (UPN) Configuration Steps


1. In the Profile Provider Settings section, select False from the Same as Above dropdown

2. Select Directory Server from the Default Profile Provider dropdown if Active Directory (UPN) will be used to supply the user information rather than the data store configured in the Membership Connection Settings section

Profile Connection Settings


3. Select Directory Server from the Data Store dropdown

4. Select Active Directory (UPN) from the Directory Server dropdown

5. Set the Connection String using the directory domain, e.g. LDAP:<directory>.<domain>/DC=<directory>,DC=<domain>

6. Provide the Username of the SecureAuth IdP Service Account

7. Provide the Password associated with the Username

8. Provide the Search Attribute to be used to search for the user's account in the directory, e.g. userPrincipalName

9. Click Generate Search Filter, and the searchFilter will auto-populate

The value that equals %v is what the end-user will provide on the login page, so if it is different from the Search Attribute, change it here

For example, if the Search Attribute is userPrincipalName, but end-users will log in with their email addresses (field=mail), the searchFilter would be (&(mail=%v)((objectclass=user)(objectcategory=person)))

10. Provide the Allowed User Groups for this realm

Leave this field blank if there is no access restriction

11. Check Include Nested Groups if the subgroups from the listed User Groups are to be allowed access as well

12. Click Test Connection to ensure that the integration is successful

Refer to Data Tab Configuration to complete the configuration steps in the Data tab of the Web Admin
