Active Directory Intergration?

  • aaron2310


    Forgive me if this is the wrong area. I’m a pretty new WordPress user but I’m using it to build an Intranet. Management decided they wanted a message boards and I discovered bbPress so I thought I’d give it a go instead of using SMF.

    However, I was wondering if there was any way in which I could create accounts and authentic login details via Active Directory (around 500 users) instead of creating all the accounts manually.

    I did search for this but the threads were 4/8 years old so I wasn’t too confident in how relevant they are.

    bbpress uses the default wordpress user setup, but adds a bbpres role to the wp-capabilities in user_meta.

    So as long as there is a wp_user then on first login by that user bbpress will allocate the default bbpress role as set in Dashboard>settings>forums.

    In think this plugin might be your solution, as it seems to create and update wordpress via AD

    and then bbpress will use that wordpress database to add the role.
