Release Notes

Change Log

  • Added support for adding groups from AD to Mindtouch Deki.
  • The timeout setting in the config is now honored.
  • AD referrals during searches are now chased.
  • Made some changes to the solution name and the assembly info to reflect the re-branding of DekiWiki as Mindtouch Deki
  • Added redist folder with all dependencies and updated project references to use it for easier builds from source.

Why would you use this services instead of the default?
You need support for nested group retrieval or you need to change the port for your LDAP server.

Why wouldn't you?
You need support for ssl. (planned in future releases)


  1. Drop the dll into your bin/services directory under the deki webroot (Deki VM: /var/www/deki-hayes/bin/services)
  2. Set the service sid to sid://BrianE/2008/08/active-directory-authentication
  3. The service config parameters are the same as the default LDAP Authentication Service except
    1. you must enter a valid user for bindingdn in UPN format (e.g.,
    2. you must enter the password for the account you used for the bindingdn
    3. the groupquery/groupmember settings are ignored since we get that from tokenGroups

To Do

Add support for ssl
Add logging
Add check for missing config parameters that are required


Testing has been very limited. Hopefully you can help with that. :) I've used the samAccountName for everything except the displayname-pattern, and I've only tested these display name patterns:
  • {givenName}{sn}
  • {sn}, {giventName}
