  • EFT v6.0 - 6.2.x; SAT v2

DISCUSSION

The Secure AD Hoc Transfer (SAT) module can work with Active Directory (AD) authentication.

To make AD work with SAT, edit the following configuration:

  • Edit the AD-specific settings in the SAT module's web.config file. The Active Directory Server Configuration section of the online help  details each of the defined settings in the web.config file.
  • Specify an alternate form of authentication in IIS. The IIS Authentication section of the online help describes how to specify an alternate form of authentication, such as Basic authentication or Integrated Windows authentication, which must be enabled in the Authentication Methods dialog box. Ensure that the Enable anonymous access check box is not selected.
  • If an alternate form of authentication is defined, the Authenticated Users group in IIS must be granted full permission to the EFTAdhoc folder (e.g., C:\Inetpub\EFTAdHoc).

For example, to populate the Secure Ad Hoc web page and lock the From field, you would edit the following variables:

"UseADExtensions" value="True"

AD-SetFromFieldWithEmail" value="True"

"SearchFilter" value="(&(objectClass=person)(|(sAMAccountName=%USER.LOGIN%)(userPrincipalName=%USER.LOGIN%)(mail=%USER.LOGIN%)))"

"Attributes" value="cn,sAMAccountName,userPrincipalName,mail,displayName,sn"

"Scope" value="Subtree"

"UseConfiguredDomainAccount" value="Secure"

"SenderEmailDisplayAttribute" value="mail"

"LockFromField"="True"

(LockFromField is one of the Global variables)

Refer to Q10464 - HOWTO: Using the SAT module with Active Directory or the SAT module help file for a table of AD-specific variables.
