I am currently using the default login page of Nagvis (customized the logo to make it more 'ours'), and the authentication set to the default SQLite. My plan is to change the authentication mode to use Windows AD/LDAP instead of the default, and in the near future, use single-sign on authentication. I understand that this can be done using the Apache authentication but the users would like to see the login page instead of a gray box so now I am stuck to changing the authentication WHILE retaining the pretty login page. However, I am now at a dead-end. The Nagvis documentation says that the authentication and authorisation modules, and quote:
"It is possible to add own authentication modules for supporting other authentication mechanism. For details have a look at the authentication module documentation."
Following the link to where the answer lies, the page was empty. Searched through the docs in the installer still leads to nowhere. So here are my questions:
1) Has anyone tried using AD or LDAP authentication in Nagvis and succeeded in doing so?
2) What is the difference between Authentication and Authorisation? (The documentation that I read did not differentiate the two).
3) Why is the doc page blank?
Finally, 4) Where can I get more information on how to change the authentication mode of Nagvis?
Thanks to all in advance!
