Enabling Windows Authenticated Login

Keystyle Support Team -

If you'd like your users to log in to the portal with their Windows Active Directory credentials, please follow the steps below to enable this login mode:

1.  In 'Portal Settings' > 'Security / Login', update the Company Login Choices setting to either 2 - Windows Only, or 3 - Both (Employee Number and Windows).  

2.  In 'Portal Settings' > 'Admin / Initial Setup' section, update the settings for LDAP Domain (i.e. DOMAIN from DOMAIN\Username) and LDAP Path.  For the LDAP path, the typical value here will be the IP Address of a Domain Controller in the format LDAP://

3.  Ensure your VA User Profile is set up in the following format:  DOMAIN\Username.  When users log into the portal, they should enter their Username without the domain.  The domain will be automatically added and validated against the VA User Profile.  If your VA User Profiles are not set up as windows logins, you can use the "Domain Login" field to input this information, as alternative to recreating the user profile.  

From the User Profile, the portal will look at the Employee and PRCo identified on the User Profile to identify the employee. Make sure you have your PR Co: and Employee: filled out.

Note: If you already have SQL based VA User Profiles set up, you can use the Domain Login field to store your active directory username without recreating your Vista user profile.

For other configuration scenarios (sub domains, non-standard user names, no VA User Profiles, etc.) please contact Keystyle support - we'd be happy to walk you through the set up process.
