DreamFactory Active Directory authentication over LDAP

Posted by Arif Islam

Tue, Oct 13, 2015

DreamFactory 2.0 has built-in support for Active Directory authentication over LDAP. Developers can now provide the ability for their users to sign in using their enterprise/corporate login credentials. In other words, you can now easily set up an enterprise app to allow users to sign in using their corporate username and password, eliminating the need for creating and remembering yet another set username and password for their app.

AD/LDAP in DreamFactory 2.0 works just like other services in DreamFactory. It starts with provisioning an AD/LDAP service using the Services tab in the DreamFactory 2.0 admin console. While provisioning the service, simply specify your Active Directory server details such as hostname, base DN etc., as well as a default role. This role will be used for any users authenticating using your AD/LDAP service. You can easily create a role in DreamFactory 2.0 using the admin console. Here is a short how-to on setting up an AD/LDAP service with DreamFactory 2.0. We will start with setting up a role for our AD/LDAP service.

DreamFactory 2.0 supports authentication using OAuth services. Developers can now allow end users to login with credentials from sites like Facebook, Twitter (yes, OAuth 1.0 is supported!), Google, and GitHub.

DreamFactory 2.0 makes it super easy to add OAuth services to your apps without any server-side coding or token handling. The currently supported OAuth service providers are Facebook, Twitter, Google, and GitHub. We’ll be adding more OAuth providers in the future.

How To Securely Mobilize Data Using a REST API Backend

Posted by Bill Appleton

Thu, Jul 2, 2015

We get lots of inquiries about how the DreamFactory REST API platform helps secure data access, particularly from larger enterprise and government users. It's a valid concern: a growing number of web and mobile apps need to access sensitive data, and proper controls must be implemented in the services used to access that data from an expanding number of apps.

The Authenticated App With AngularJS + DreamFactory User Management Part Two

Tue, Apr 15, 2014

When we last left off our application had a few routes, corresponding controllers, and templates. All we learned how to do was wire up the DreamFactory User Management module to the app and respond to its events. Not exactly earth shattering stuff. But that's all about to change in this tutorial. We're going to go over some strategies to deal with data, capture and use data from the module, and protect routes in our app.

Using OAuth with the New Portal Service (Part 2)

Are we there yet?

This post picks up where part 1 left off... I apologize for the delay. My original post was too long so I split it into two parts. In reviewing the second installment, I realized that the concepts were a bit vague and would be better conveyed through an actual application.

Thus, the Portal Sandbox was born! The full source code is available on GitHub. Go ahead and clone a copy so you can follow along. I'll wait...
