Adding Active Directory users

When adding Active Directory users, the New User dialog is asking for a password.  Shouldn't the user enter their Active Directory password?

Ref this Answer by Jorge Martin

(1) The Users' application already implements Integrated Authentication on its User_Login (that your application is likely already using), and behaves like you described (checks OutSystems credentials first, if there's no match check against Windows/AD... and if successful, creates a local "shallow" User record with the username but no password - you want to continue going through AD for authentication).

(2) Is most certainly possible, the Authentication extension module (part of the platform) already has:

  • the ActiveDirectory_GetAccountDetails action that provides access to Name, Email Address, Phone Number and whether the user is active or not.
  • the ActiveDirectory_GetAccountGroups action that returns a list of Groups.

And you can further explore the Active Directory forge component, that has quite an extensive list of available actions
