Binding to Active Directory

Posted by stingray70m on 29-Nov-2016 11:26

I'm would like to authenticate a username and password to my active directory. I've found many links using C# and one that connects me to show specific details of a user from a link below but not sure how to implement a password field into the lookup. Any help would be appreciated!!

Sample:

DEFINE VARIABLE oADContext      AS System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.DirectoryContext.

DEFINE VARIABLE oDirectoryEntry AS System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.

DEFINE VARIABLE oSearch         AS System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher.

DEFINE VARIABLE oResult         AS System.DirectoryServices.SearchResult.

DEFINE VARIABLE oenum#          AS System.Collections.IEnumerator.

DEFINE VARIABLE iCount          AS INTEGER     NO-UNDO.

DEFINE VARIABLE iItem           AS INTEGER     NO-UNDO.

DEFINE VARIABLE cUserName#      AS CHARACTER   NO-UNDO.

DEFINE VARIABLE cPassword        as character no-undo.

DEFINE VARIABLE cPath#          AS CHARACTER   NO-UNDO.

DEFINE VARIABLE cEmail          AS CHARACTER   NO-UNDO.

oADContext      = NEW System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.DirectoryContext(System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.DirectoryContextType:Domain).

oDirectoryEntry = System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.Domain:GetDomain(oADContext):GetDirectoryEntry().

cUserName#      = "usera".

cPassword         = "mypassword".

oSearch         = NEW System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher(oDirectoryEntry,SUBSTITUTE("(&&(objectClass=user)(sAMAccountName=&1))",cUserName#)).

oResult         = oSearch:FindOne().

/* now I've got the complete LDAP path of the Windows user */

oDirectoryEntry = NEW System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry(oResult:path).

oenum#          =  oDirectoryEntry:Properties:GetEnumerator().

Thanks

It's much simpler if all you need to do is find out if a user name and password are valid. Here's some sample code.

/* This needs to be added to assemblies file */
USING System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement.*.
DEFINE VARIABLE objContext AS PrincipalContext.
objContext = NEW PrincipalContext(ContextType:Domain,"YourDomain").
MESSAGE objContext:ValidateCredentials("TestUser","TestPasssword1")

Awesome! Thanks

One more minor point I should have mentioned. Passing NULL as both username and password will come back as true.

objContext:ValidateCredentials(?,?).

So make sure your code does not allow this.
