A relatively new user of GovIntranet here.
We have deployed GovIntranet for an enterprise client that requires Active Directory integration in future, and spent a lot of time investigating the best way of achieving this.
The main challenges here are:
1) A lot of the current offerings are incredibly expensive as are priced per user
2) They are cloud offerings, which introduce a whole range of security concerns for enterprise clients
3) They tend to actually have very little in-house WordPress expertise on their development/product teams
In the end, we sponsored the developers behind the popular Active Directory Integration plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/active-directory-integration/) to extend it in order to provide single sign-on capabilities.
The new plugin (NextADI) is now publicly available in the plugins repository, and a new website for it has just been released. I thought this might be of interest to some other GovIntranet users.
Thanks for sponsoring this plugin Stuart. We installed this plugin this week and finally have AD working on our intranet. Just a few kinks to work out but getting there.
Hi Pam – that’s great news, thanks for letting me know.
