Active Directory / LDAP Integration Administrator Manual
|Title||Ability to authenticate MXIE login using an Active Directory / LDAP database (Licensed option)|
The AD/LDAP Authentication feature allows the MXIE Username and Login Password to be authenticated against an external AD/LDAP database. This allows users to log into MXIE using their normal Windows/Domain password. When AD/LDAP authentication is enabled for a user, the MXIE login is authenticated against AD/LDAP, voicemail access from a phone is authenticated based on a separate PIN defined in the MX user record.
Usage: In MX Administrator application select 'Provision | System Settings - LDAP Configuration' and configure AD/LDAP server parameters. Open each User Record requiring AD/LDAP Authentication and check the 'Use LDAP Authentication' option. Press OK and Apply changes. Upon next MXIE login the user's credentials will be authenticated against AD/LDAP. Status of connection between MX and the AD/LDAP server may be checked via the 'View | System Services - LDAP' screen.
