How to use Grist + Windows AD (Active Directory) Auth

Hello everyone!

Help please to understand how can I user Grist + Win AD Authentication. Need I to use SAML? If “yes” can you show/give me detailed instruction?

Thank you!

You need an IDP service, that provides SAML and use any LDAP (Active Directory) service for the user accounts.
An IDP is ADFS from Microsoft or Keycloak ( If you want to use Keycloak, this thread should give you a working configuration:

I’ve used authentik with grist and Win AD, it works very well and was not too complicated to set up.
If you still need instructions i could create a detailed walk through how i did it.
