Configure Drupal login using LDAP / Active Directory

Drupal LDAP Login module allows your LDAP / Active Directory users to login to Drupal using their LDAP / Active Directory ( AD ) credentials. In addition to LDAP, this module also allows you to login using NTLM and Kerberos. We provide Drupal LDAP SSO login module which is compatible with Drupal 7, Drupal 8, and as well as Drupal 9. It allows users to authenticate against various LDAP implementations like Microsoft Active Directory, OpenLDAP, OpenDS, FreeIPA, Synology, and other directory systems as well as perform authentication using NTLM and Kerberos.

If you have any doubts or queries, you can contact us at We will help you to configure the module. If you want, we can also schedule an online meeting to help you configure the Drupal LDAP / Active Directory SSO login module.
