Hansoft LDAP integration

The Hansoft LDAP Integration synchronizes Hansoft users to user accounts in an LDAP directory server, such as Windows Active Directory. It matches accounts on login names and optionally creates Hansoft users for unmatched LDAP accounts, enabling you to easily import your users into Hansoft. Subsequent changes to LDAP account properties are automatically reflected in Hansoft user properties. The LDAP Integration also serves as a gateway for authentication; enabling users to log into Hansoft using their LDAP passwords or no password at all, single sign on (Windows).
