Active Directory user accounts

MicroSoft's Active Directory (AD) service provides a namespace for resolving wide range of objects including user accounts. An Active Directory configuration for web applications deployed on PAS for OpenEdge allows authentication using a Windows user@domain type ID. It locates and validates users from the user object's userPrincipalName field. It obtains granted roles from the user object's memberOf field.

You configure AD in the Microsoft Active Directory user account services section of the file. See for an explanation of AD properties and their valid settings.
