Last updated: 01 Nov, 2016

Remote authentication allows you to integrate your organization's authentication system with KBPublisher.
Configuration requires only a few simple steps.

Steps to enable Remote Authentication

  • Set the config variable $conf['auth_remote'] in the file admin/config.inc.php to 1
  • Click on Settings
  • Click LDAP Authentication    
  • Set up LDAP settings and authentication options, see this article for details
  • In case if youy want to use Auto Authentication, you set it up, see this article for details

Quick summary of the process

  • End user goes to site
  • Remote Authentication checks for valid user credentials
    • If auto-authentication is set, does this automatically
    • If auto-authentication is not set, user logs in first
  • KBPublisher authenticates the user .

Tracking logins

You can see how your remote authentication works in logs Logs/Logins

For debugging every last login is logged to a file called last_remote_login.log in the KBPublisher cache directory (APP_CACHE_DIR in admin/config.inc.php ).
For example: /home/username/ kb_cache/last_remote_login.log
