Multiple Base DN entries? (4 posts)

    When configuring the plugin to work with a single AD server and Base DN, the plugin works perfectly, and the user meta data is pulled perfectly. However, when working with multiple AD servers, users can log in, but the user meta no longer gets pulled. We believe this issue has to do with the lack of support for multiple Base DN entries. Does the plugin support multiple Base DN entries as of right now? If not, can this functionality be added? If so, I'd be interested in compensating you for your time and effort.

    Many Thanks!

    Same here. I posted in another thread but just to be sure, here is our scenario:

    Similar issue here: corp-intern.local and corp-extern.local There is a trust relationship (extern trusts intern). But the users are under different Base DNs.

    In fact, since we're opening this conversation up, what if the users you want to allow are also in different groups between the domains (e.g. internal-web vs. external-web)? And what if we want different default roles for each group (e.g. internal-web -> contributor vs external-web -> subscriber)?

    I also am in need of this functionality. We have users in two domains that need to login to our WordPress. Authentication works, but they cannot pass group authorization because the groups they belong to are under different domains, and as a result under different Base DNs.

    right now ADI doesn't support mutliple base dns. And the support for different servers is poor. We'll get some serious problems with such a configuration. What if there's a user johndoe in both domains? The possible problems are uncountable. But let's think of a solution. Please tell me how this should work and I'll do my best to get out.

    Waiting for your proposals.
