I’'m trying to implement Jive as a messaging platform at our university. What I need is this: Users sign in with Active Directory credentials (ie, LDAP), but that is the only interaction with the LDAP server. Everything else has to run through a MySQL database, INCLUDING which users have access to Jive.
The reason for this is to be able to do custom account registration, while still using LDAP credentials.
In short: users must login with LDAP credentials, but should only be allowed to use the service if a specific MySQL entry exists for their account.
(I have no option of specifiying it as part of the LDAP query as I do not have any write access to the LDAP directory.)
