Team Coding with providers authentication using Active Directory


#1

Hello everybody,

I’m currently using team coding 8.1 in TOAD 12.10 with the SVN provider with SVN connection svn://…
The authentication is basic using user and password setup in the password file of the svn repository.

We want to have a best authentication using Active Directory, is it possible with toad to do such authentication?

What are the possibilities?

Using SVN with https connection and provide the user/passord of Active Directory?

Using GIT provider ? is it possible to use GIT Provider with Active Directory authentication?

Thank you very much,
Sébastien.

Hi Sebastien,

Subversion has the ability to use Active Directory accounts if you set it up to use WebDav (https) and LDAP authentication. For information, see the following link:

https://www.open.collab.net/support/media/pdfs/SVN/Subversion%20with%20Apache%20and%20LDAP.pdf

In Toad, you’ll still enter your username and password when logging into Subversion.

Git is a distributed version control system, so there may or may not be a centralized server repository. If there is, you’ll need to use one that supports authenticating through LDAP. This could be either authentication through WebDav or through SSH. Since there are a number of Git hosting solutions out there, you may need to Google which ones support LDAP in order to use Active Directory. In Toad 12.10, push and pull operations will need to be done manually outside of Toad. In Toad 13, they can be done inside Toad using Git’s Credential Manager.

I hope that helps. Let us know if there’s anything else we can do.
