Provides an solution for authentication users with LDAP for Laravel 5.0.x. It uses ADLDAP library to create a bridge between Laravel and LDAP


  1. Install this package through Composer for Laravel v5.0:

    composer require dsdevbe/ldap-connector:3.*

    If you still want to use Ldap-connector for Laravel v4.2 please refer to the following package

    composer require dsdevbe/ldap-connector:2.*
  2. Change the authentication driver in the Laravel config to use the ldap driver. You can find this in the following file config/auth.php

    'driver' => 'ldap',
  3. Create a new configuration file ldap.php in the configuration folder of Laravel app/config/ldap.php and modify to your needs. For more detail of the configuration you can always check on ADLAP documentation

    return array(
    	'account_suffix'=>  "@domain.local",
    	'domain_controllers'=>  array("", "dc02.domain.local"), // Load balancing domain controllers
    	'base_dn'   =>  'DC=domain,DC=local',
  4. Once this is done you arrived at the final step and you will need to add a service provider. Open config/app.php, and add a new item to the providers array.



The LDAP plugin is an extension of the AUTH class and will act the same as normal usage with Eloquent driver.

if (Auth::attempt(array('username' => $email, 'password' => $password)))
    return Redirect::intended('dashboard');

You can find more examples on Laravel Auth Documentation on using the Auth:: function.
