After looking around on the forums, I found this thread discussing LDAP and Active Directory. However, seeing as the thread was from 2011, I thought it better to make my own thread instead of necro-ing the other one.
That being said, I am trying to use LDAP to enable Single Sign-On capability between my xenForo forum and the Hawkeye user administration plugin for Minecraft.
Both xenForo and the Hawkeye Web Interface use a mssql database to hold usernames and passwords (so I might just be able to tell Hawkeye to read from the xenForo user database, or at least synchronize particular users), however I'm looking for a solution that allows for future-proofing.
That being said, have there been any additions or changes to xenForo in the past five years to allow for LDAP or similar capability? I have xenForo running in a DMZ (created by a Cisco ASA 5510 firewall), so I could very easily either put an AD server there or on my internal network to handle authentication.
After doing a bit of research, I've found this modification for Hawkeye. It seems correct code-wise, but will the plugin still work with xenForo? I'm a bit wary about using three-year old code.
