Using Active Directory Authentication

Hi Guys,

I am trying to get ignition to authenticate with Active Directory to allow ignition to use our pre-structured corporate security groups but have been hitting a brick wall.

I can setup a hybrid (AD/internal) and it will authenticate to AD without issue and work with roles added in ignition.

When I use a pure AD profile it will work fine with some users but not all? Roles can be used in the designer based on the AD security groups without issue.

Usernames which work are located in the same AD location but are single names eg. Johnbloke

There was a query that I saw asking if the user names like John.Bloke caused issues with the “.” but there was not answers…

Seems weird that the hybrid functions fine?

The error which appears is

[LDAP: error code 1 - 000020D6: SvcErr: DSID-03100754, problem 5012 (DIR_ERROR), data 0
See log for details.

I have searched for a log file which shows this info but must be looking in the wrong places as I cant find it??

Thanks for any help…


Working with my IT guys I have found what the issue was…

Basically Ignition doesnt like having a “/” in a Active directory group name.

Changed the “/” to a “_” and away it went without issue.


Thanks for posting the solution, I’m sure it will help others.
