Users Not Authenticating

I have my system set to private, so agents must register users.  When registering users, I'm given the option to authenticate using "any available backend", and I would prefer this to be linked with AD so that users don't have to have separate passwords for the helpdesk system and their normal domain accounts.  I have the LDAP plug installed and enabled.  Upon registering, users set a PW, and that's the PW they have to use, not their normal account PW.  I'd really like for the users to be able to use the same PW as their normal account, like agents are able to.

Any ideas?

  • What version of the ldap plugin are you running?
    I dont know if the current version has been tested with such an old version of osTicket.
  • According to the plugin.php, it's auth-ldap v0.4


    return array(
        'id' =>             'auth:ldap', # notrans
        'version' =>        '0.4',
        'name' =>           'LDAP Authentication and Lookup',
        'author' =>         'Jared Hancock',
        'description' =>    'Provides a configurable authentication backend
            which works against Microsoft Active Directory and OpenLdap
        'url' =>            '',
        'plugin' =>         'authentication.php:LdapAuthPlugin'

  • Have you enabled User logins to use LDAP?
    Manage -> Plugins -> LDAP Authentication and Lookup -> tick Client Authentication

  • that does not appear to be an option in this version.  guess i'll have to update.
