user1: “3d8e0e8dd1371f4e58724819ba6a2f2b11d6d3e1”
};

Active Directory

In your config.js, you need to set the following properties:
eg.

exports.ADConfig = {
‘ADUrl’: ‘ldap://your.server.com:389/’,
‘ADSearchBase’: ‘ou=users,ou=office,dc=something,dc=myco’,
‘ADBrowserUsername’: ‘CN=Sample LDAP Browser,OU=Test,OU=Accounts,OU=OFFICE,DC=foo,DC=com’,
‘ADBrowserPassword’: ‘secret’
};

In your app

To connect:
var {authenticate} = require('ngv/basic-auth');
or
var {authenticate} = require('ngv/ad-auth');
