Active Directory is Microsoft’s primary authentication service widely used in Enterprise organizations and even via Microsoft’s cloud services. While Active Directory also supports LDAP protocol support (which Morpheus can integrate with as well), the main Active Directory integration can also be utilized. It is even possible to map Active Directory groups to equivalent Roles within Morpheus. Morpheus will connect over port 389 for non-secure LDAP and port 636 for secure LDAP.
To use Active Directory, a valid / trusted SSL certificate must be in place on the Active Directory services (self signed will not work).
Adding an Active Directory Integration¶
Navigate to Administration > Tenants
Select a Tenant
Select IDENTITY SOURCES
Select + IDENTITY SOURCE
Choose “Active Directory”
Populate the following:
Unique name for authentication type.
- AD Server
Hostname or IP address of AD Server.
Domain name of AD Domain.
- Binding Username
Service account username for bind user.
- Binding Password
Password for bind service account.
- Required Group
The AD group users must be in to have access (optional)
- Default Role
The default role a user is assigned if no group is listed under AD user that maps under Role Mappings section.
- Service Account Holder
This is the admin account type in Morpheus and an AD group can be created and populated to a user that this role should be assigned. Roles are assigned dynamically based on group membership.
- ENABLE ROLE MAPPING PERMISSION
When selected, Tenant users with appropriate rights to view and edit Roles will have the ability to set role mapping for the Identity Source integration. This allows the Tenant user to edit only the role mappings without viewing or potentially editing the Identity Source configuration.
- MANUAL ROLE ASSIGNMENT
When selected, administrators can manually edit Roles for users created through this identity source integration from the user detail page (Administration > Users > Selected user).
For more on Identity Source role mapping permissions, see the associated guide in our KnowledgeBase.
Select SAVE CHANGES.
Now allowed AD users can login to Morpheus via their Active Directory credentials and a User will be automatically generated to Morpheus with matching metadata and mapped Role permissions.
Only the username is required with password, not the username@domain.
Sub-tenant Morpheus API authentication for Active Directory generated users is not currently supported.
