Get user from windows active directory

I need to get or validate user from windows active directory


maybe something in this thread will help? LDAP

I struggled with this for a while and ultimately ended up going with the MBS LDAP plugin to get it working successfully, not just for basic authentication but also to pull down security group memberships and other info. I highly recommend the MBS plugins (doesn’t everyone)? They’re available here:

LDAP cannot do much in a Web app. All you would get is the user on the server.

Normally, a web app has no access to the name of the current user or to the file system of the client. However, it seems some workaround are possible, according to the link below. It works on Windows with IE, but I suspect it will work with Edge as well.
