User Redirection after LDAP Authentication
LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) authentication is a widely used method for
validating user credentials in various applications and systems. After successful LDAP authentication,
it's often necessary to redirect users to specific pages or applications based on their roles or
permissions. In this guide, we will explore the process of user redirection after LDAP authentication,
offering step-by-step instructions and best practices.
- Install the
Drupal LDAP / Active
Directory Integration module.
- Set up the above module with your LDAP or Active Directory server. You can also refer to this setup guide for assistance.
Setup User Redirect URL for Login and Logout:
- After successfully configuring the module head towards the
Advanced Settings tab (admin/config/people/ldap_auth/settings) of the module.
- Enter the URL on which you want to redirect your user after successful LDAP authentication under the
“Redirect URL After login” text field.
- Enter the URL on which you want to redirect the user after logout,
- Save the configuration.
Test the User Redirection:
Let's see how this feature works. Follow the below steps to test the user redirection.
- Open a private browsing window (like incognito mode).
- Try to log in to the Drupal website using the user's LDAP credentials.
- You will be redirected to the saved URL after successful LDAP authentication.
Congratulations, you have successfully configured the user redirection after LDAP authentication.
We hope that you find this guide useful and easy to configure.
