LDAP Authentication for Portal


We've got LDAP/AD connector integration successful in a process, but all users will access workflow through Portal sign-in.

Is there a way to integrate PORTAL sign-in with LDAP authentication?

This one is the BEST answer!

Synchronization with LDAP for the Portal is available in our Subscription editions.

However, many developers with Bonita BPM COmmunity edition use the LDAP connector to create a small sync process between LDAP and the Bonita user database. You can then use a timer start and set it every 24h, for example.

Thank you for the answer. That is a perfect way to import the users to the local DB. How do I authenticate against LDAP real-time when users log into Portal? Rather than authenticating against a local password

I am not sure this is possible with Community edition


Hi, can someone give directions to use this JAR in 7.11.4? or any other updated direction to authenticate Community Edition with AD/LDAP?

Thank you for your support.


Now AD/LDAP authentication is available for Bonita community edition.

1. Add the bonita-server-7.6.0.jar file into WEB-INF/lib/.
2. Add the bonita-community-adldap-config.properties file into the WEB-INF/classes, and edit the connection parameters accordingly.

Limitation of this solution is that authentication will actually be handle by the Active Directory / LDAP server but the user will no exist in Bonita Engine database. Users must be created in Bonita Engine database for various reasons including tasks dispatch, privileges management... The tool that synchronize users from Active Directory / LDAP server to Bonita Engine database is only available in Subscription Edition.

Thanks for bonita-adldap_sync. I've used this a amazing solution for Synchronization issue, while my solution has solved the **Authentication **issue.

I would appreciate.
