Multiple authentication method


#1

Hi,

Is there a way to combine database and LDAP as authentication method, I am using CF 4.0. Because I want to maintain local users and Directory users.

Easiest way is to have one UI for the LDAP users and one for the database users. So one will only authenticate against LDAP, the other will always use the internal database.
You just need to make sure that the namespace do not collide, so you could use a domain suffix for the LDAP users, or make sure otherwise that names in the DB and LDAP are unique.
