Getting MindTouch Deki Wiki working on Windows Server

This site is intended to read more like a series of instructions than a blog, so I would recommend using the Table of Contents on the right to navigate.

Authenticating with Active Directory

This is how to configure MindTouch Core (Deki Wiki) 10.1.4 to authenticate with Active Directory.
  • From the wiki, go to Tools > Control Panel.
  • Go to System Settings > Authentication on the left.
  • Click the Add Authentication Service tab.
    • For Choose an authentication provider, choose LDAP.
    • For Description, choose how you want it to show up on the login page.
    • For Service Identifier (SID), use sid://mindtouch.com/ent/2009/03/ldap-authentication
      • This is the default value for new LDAP configurations.  The one that was imported from Deki 8.08.2 was sid://mindtouch.com/2007/05/ldap-authentication, though that seemed to work just fine as well.
    • Select Default authentication provider if you want it to be selected by default on the login page.  Chances are you do.
    • For hostname, put your fully qualified domain controller name, such as myserver.mydomain.com.
    • For bindingdn, put $1@mydomain.com, substituting mydomain.com for your own.
    • For searchbase, put each segment of your domain in DC=x,DC=y format, such as DC=mydomain,DC=com.
    • For userquery, put samAccountName=$1.
    • Under Preferences, add key displayname-pattern and give it value {givenname} {SN}.
