How does the LDAP integration work in Evolven?

Evolven has two types of LDAP support. Both are configured using "Options/Server Settings" in the top-right of the screen.

LDAP Authentication allows you to import LDAP users from LDAP. Authentication (validating passwords) is done by LDAP. All other management of the user is done within Evolven. Each user in LDAP which is using Evolven must have a corresponding user in Evolven.

LDAP Group Authentication allows you to map users to groups within LDAP, and these groups (CNs in LDAP) are then created as users in Evolven. A user can be a part of one or more groups, and in this way can have composite privileges.
