Custom Authentication / Active Directory


WorkflowFirst Professional supports Active Directory integration for authentication, password management and also for storing user profile information.

By default, WorkflowFirst will authenticate users based on the Users table, comparing the password against information stored there. This default behavior can be overidden, however, using a special system script called "Authenticate". Once this script is specified, any request to authenticate will run this script instead of looking up the user in the Users table.

Using this script, you can utilize the built-in Active Directory functions to authenticate via Active Directory, or any other means you have at your disposal.

In this section we will discuss creating the authentication script, and also using the Active Directory interface to retrieve information and authenticate using Active Directory.
