How to connect to Active Directory

CYBERQUEST can be integrated with Active Directory or LDAP systems, allowing users to authenticate to CYBERQUEST using their Active Directory credentials. To do this, please follow these steps:

Active Directory side

Create the AD group for the CYBERQUEST users (e.g. CQUsers). Add to the AD group the users that will use CYBERQUEST.



To access Web Interface, open a web browser and type the application's address or DNS name. The default address initially assigned to Web Interface is https://CyberquestIPAddress (example).

The browser automatically redirects you to CYBERQUEST's authentication page:
