Private Gallery LDAP Authentication Option

Currently the Private Gallery product has 2 authentication options - AD and built in. 


If an organization uses AD, this solution is fine, however there are many origanizations who use other standard directory systems. One of the more common directory/authentication systemsis LDAP due to its wide adoption and cross platform compatibility. 


It would be fantastic to have functionality similar to the AD integration, however with LDAP for Gallery authentication and user management.

Same Here , Need LDAP Auth...

Thanks all for the idea. We are looking into supporting LDAP and identity providers via SAML. If others are interested in LDAP, please Star this post as it helps us refine our roadmap and adjust priorities.

If considering adding additional authentication methodologies, please consider making it possible to change without a server reinstall.  Having to reinstall Alteryx Server and starting from scratch is a non-starter for any enterprise that has any amount of time and effort invested in Server/Gallery environment.

@Cimmel, we plan to account for this. Migration between user authentication methods (e.g: local->SAML 2.0) is a fundamental requirement. We understand how painful it would be to migrate larger Alteryx Server environments if you had to reinstall.

MattB - that is great news.  When I received the news from Support that a reinstall was necessary I started looking for "Ideas" in the community.  I look forward to when you can share where it is on the roadmap (assuming you can't now as you would have already :) ).  


Thanks again for the update.

Thank you for your feedback and patience. I'm updating this idea to Not Planned as we currently do not have plans LDAP as an authentication method for the Alteryx Server. Should this change we'll update the status of the idea to match accordingly. 


Currently SAML and SSO are available.
