Require Email Address for PortalGuard Login


Problem

Allow users to login using Domain name instead of username. 

Solution

Important Note: This change requires your end users to all have a populated ‘mail’ attribute in Active Directory.  If they do not, this change will prevent the user from being able to login to PortalGuard. As such, it may be worthwhile to test this change in a test environment first, or at the very least snapshot the server before making these changes.

  • Open the PortalGuard Configuration Editor
  • Under User Repositories edit the repository that this will apply to.
  • Navigate to LDAP Advanced
  • Update the 'Login Field' to use mail
  • Save this Configuration
  • Click Apply to PortalGuard Server
  • Click Sync
  • Open the PortalGuard Identity Provider Configuration Editor
  • Under Attribute Stores  edit the same repository as above
  • In LDAP Advanced
  • Update 'Login Field' to use mail
  • Save this Configuration
  • Click Apply to PortalGuard Server
  • Click Sync
  • From an elevated CMD, run the following command:
    • iisreset

Browse to your PortalGuard website and attempt to login with the username@domain format
