Joomla LDAP Handbook

MiniOrange Joomla LDAP Integration with Active Directory and OpenLDAP – NTLM & Kerberos Login plugin (Learn More) is an authentication method for your Active Directory/LDAP Server users, allowing them to access multiple Joomla applications with a single set of credentials. With the miniOrange Joomla LDAP plugin, users can log into your Joomla site(s) using their Active Directory/LDAP credentials.

The plugin allows users to authenticate against various LDAP implementations like Microsoft Active Directory, Azure Active Directory, Sun Active Directory, Open LDAP Directory, Jump Cloud, FreeIPA Directory, Synology, Open-DS, and several other LDAP Directory Systems.

The miniOrange Joomla LDAP plugin not only supports user authentication but also user management functions like creating users in Joomla from the Active Directory/LDAP Server if not already present, importing all users from your Active Directory to your Joomla site, auto-logging (NTLM/Kerberos SSO) users in Joomla with their domain credentials and mapping user attribute values after LDAP authentication, group mapping of the user's group from the Active Directory/LDAP Server to Joomla roles, and more.
