LDAP client authentication fails

Hi all

I have configured the use of active directory using LDAP in the gateway.
I can see the list of active directory users and the test authentication process is working fine.

However when i run the client the authentication fails…
The gateway log starts as following…
java.lang.Exception: Authentication using username and password is required.
at com.inductiveautomation.ignition.gateway.authentication.impl.InternalUserSource.authenticate(InternalUserSource.java:152)
at com.inductiveautomation.ignition.gateway.authentication.UserSourceWrapper.authenticate(UserSourceWrapper.java:200)
at com.inductiveautomation.ignition.gateway.servlets.gateway.functions.Login.client(Login.java:120)

  • I am logging in thru the client using the format : domainName\username

what am I doing wrong ?

thanks and regards

Have you tried it with just the username in the client login? My experience is that is all that is required.

Ignition will auto-append the domain depending on your usersource configuration. So you would not want to use domain\user if you are using the default settings.

Check out the Username Prefix/Suffix, Automatic suffix settings on the docs page. https://docs.inductiveautomation.com/display/DOC80/Active+Directory+Authentication

spot on guys!..working fine now!
