If your company already uses an Active Directory instance for authenticating users, you can configure the Workbench to use this authentication method for your users as well. Note that the user roles and permissions are still administered in the Workbench. So new users have to be created in the Workbench as well.

Active Directory Settings


Please be careful changing any settings for the Active Directory configuration. They will be saved automatically and are immediately active. Your users will not be able to login if the parameters are not correct. It is generally a good idea to test the new settings by opening a separate browser and try to login with another user. So your own session stays open and you are able to make changes if necessary.
