TWiki Built in LDAP Integration?

Hello

I'm looking into a new Wiki engine for my company. We're currently using an old version of SocialText but would like to look into open source versions instead of upgrading SocialText.

TWiki seems to tick all the boxes apart from authentication.

I'm just wondering if TWiki has got built in LDAP support?
I've tried to do some research onm this but all I can find is some out of date plugins that are broken with the latest release of TWiki.

I'm hoping there would be a way for our users to use their Active Directory details to authenticate with TWiki instead of having to remember another username and password.

Does anyone know?

Thanks!

Re: TWiki Built in LDAP Integration?

Most mid-size to large TWiki deployments depend LDAP or AD authentication so that users do not need to remember multiple logins, and for centralized user management by IT. Use the LdapContrib [1].

LDAP/AD configuration can be tricky. TWIKI.NET offers help in installing and configuring TWiki [2].

Thanks Peter. I guess I would have to use the beta version of LdapContrib?

Will give this a go and see how it works.

Thanks again
