This extension contains everything you need to integrate Joomla with LDAP (in my case OpenLDAP). It has many features, great documentation, and works. Some knowledge of LDAP is necessary but the fact that this free tool handles such a complex sub-layer so well is impressive. Well done.

We are using this extension on a corporate intranet site (Windows Server, IIS, MySQL, Active Directory). Installation was very easy and configuration is not difficult either.
We were having an issue with Single Sign-On and the developer (Shaun) helped us immensely with the troubleshooting and discovered that the issue was actually with a totally unrelated extension. Fantastic support!

There is well written code and poorly written code and believe me this is well written code.

But code can only get you so far, especially integration code, because there are so many elements outside of this component to get wrong.

We were let down an outside contractor who promised to install and configure JMAPMYLDAP for a customer of mine.

At the point of the project being cancelled Shaun stepped in and got it working. He was responsive and professional at all times. I was easily the best support I've received since I formed my company 5 years ago!

BTW, the problem was with the certificate and nothing to do with the component.

I cannot rate this component and the support highly enough.

Really happy that Shaun decided to carry the torch that Sam Moffat originally lit. I used Sam's versions for years on Joomla 1.5. I skipped several Joomla versions but recently got on board with Joomla 3. I haven't tried the version1 release, but skipped right to version2 which is currently in RC1. I'm only giving it 4 start because it isn't fully released yet, and I'd love to see it simplified further (the setup and config is do-able, but not good for rookies). The documentation is really good, and Shaun's support has been fantastic! Can't wait for the fully released version. Heading to his site now to make a donation.

This dots the i and crosses the t.
With this you can not only easily find the right integration to your directory, but also give users characeristics with joomla groupmemberships by using the LDAP membership. When you administrate users through the LDAP, you can control their access in Joomla this way! Excellent.

On my first attempt, it didn't work. After writting the author - who was very commited on helping me - I realized the problem was the lack of the php5-ldap module. After installing it, JMapMyLDAP worked imediatally! I'm using it for auth againt my Active Directory server, with excelent results. Thanks for this module!

Other than having to modify some of the code to make it work with Joomla!+PHP5+IIS7 It worked wonderfully for our intranet site.

Install instructions clear and easy to follow. I needed more granularity when syncing to an Active directory and this plugin did just that and more. With this plugin I was also able to automate the assignment of users to a Joomla group.

Wow, thank you! I am currently developing a joomla! site for our internal users and this helps ALOT. Now I can auth my users against AD with a simple configuration, compared to the old way. Once again thank you and keep up the great work.

Just what I have been looking for in Joomla 1.6/1.7!
Work well with AD, will test with Openldap and give feedback.
Good documentation, which is always welcomed.
