Does anybody have a tutorial or guide on how to set up web application level security to verify user's against an Active Directory group in order to restrict access.
ie: if current user is in group X then they can access the site.
is this even possible with JBoss? This seems like something that should be a fairly common feature. with IIS this is a very trivial step, granted it is an MS product and so is windows.
i have looked for some time now and cannot find anything.
thanks in advance
I haven't tested myself, but check this out: http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=LdapLoginModule. Last example provided there shows Active Directory support, you must implement this in the login-config.xml for the security domain of you application.
