Help - Active DirectoryLDAP groups targeting different applications using sinyproxy


#1

I work in a university environment. Our use case it to allow individual faculties to host applications using a common portal to login. Shinyproxy seems good option, however i am not sure if we can target LDAP groups to specific applications/containers.

Example:

Faculty 1 have x,y,z applications and Ldap group Faculty1-usergroup needs access to it.
Faculty 2 have a,b,c applications and ldap group Faculty2-usergroup needs access to it, however Faculty 1 must not see faculty 2’s applications and vice versa.

Is it possible to achieve this using shiny proxy.

Thanks in Advance.

Regards,
Ash.

Hi @Ash_P,

What you describe (LDAP-based authentication/authorization) is basic functionality of ShinyProxy. See https://www.shinyproxy.io/configuration/#ldap for the LDAP configuration as well as the groups field that can be set per individual app in https://www.shinyproxy.io/configuration/#apps

Hope this helps!

Best,
Tobias
