Very basic READ ONLY LDAP authentication driver for Laravel 5.2+

Look HERE for the package for Laravel 5.1.
However, only the 5.2 Version will be maintained.


Step 1: Install Through Composer

Add to your root composer.json and install with composer install or composer update

  require: {
    "krenor/ldap-auth": "~2.1"

or use composer require krenor/ldap-auth in your console.

Step 2: Add the Service Provider

Modify your config/app.php file and add the service provider to the providers array.


Step 3: Publish the configuration file by running:

php artisan vendor:publish

Now you're all set!


Step 1: Tweak the basic authentication

Update your config/auth.php to use ldap as authentication and the LdapUser Class.

'guards' => [
  	'web' => [
  		'driver'   => 'session',
  		'provider' => 'ldap-users',

'providers' => [
	'users'      => [
		'driver' => 'eloquent',
		'model'  => App\User::class,

	'ldap-users' => [
		'driver' => 'ldap',
		'model'  => \Krenor\LdapAuth\Objects\LdapUser::class,

Step 2: Adjust the LDAP config to your needs

If you have run php artisan vendor:publish you should see the
ldap.php file in your config directory. Adjust the values as you need them.
