AD-Pro Authentication v3.6

AD-Pro Authentication V3.6

Update for DNN 9



The 'AD-Pro Authentication' module is a turn-key user management solution that easily integrates your website with your intranet user organisation. DNN provides its own self-contained user security model to refine your user access to your organisations content. But most enterprise solutions already have a readily available security model and user listing available in their local intranet Active Directory accounts. That's where AD-Pro Authentication comes to the rescue, to minimise your administration costs and quickly integrate your existing Active Directory accounts into your DNN user profiles.

Leading brands around the world trust AD-Pro



Version 3 is a complete rewrite from the ground up:

  • Intranets on the internet. Open your Intranet to the Internet and allow auto sign-in for internal users whilst allowing manual sign-in for external users.
  • Future proof - completely re-written in C#, with a modern interface and optimised for performance.
  • More secure and easier to maintain - The new connection string manager secures your Active Directory connection strings from editors and allows sharing of the common connection across sites and modules
  • More flexibility - choose the format of usernames and share users across portals.
  • New Role Sync Manager. User friendly utility to map an AD group to one or more DNN roles, one AD group can have multiple corresponding DNN roles


    Version 3.6 :

    • Compatible with DNN versions 8+ to DNN v9+
    • Password reset functionality.
    • Improved role management

Core Features

Instant Active Directory Integration

Turn-key AD Authentication

With one simple module installation you can replace the default DNN log-in screen and be up and running with instant active directory integration to the AD security groups of your choice. No configuration file changes or complicated setup.

DNN Profile Synchronisation

Never have to duplicate and maintain your user profile information again. Get your users up and running on your DNN intranet portals instantly, by electing the user profiles you want to synchronise from your Active Directory repository.

Safe and Secure

With the option to use SSL support and pass through passwords that don't require storage, your user information stays secure at all times.

Advanced Features

Multi-Portal Single Sign On

With Active Directory as your identity provider you gain the ability to provide single sign-on across all your child portals. This gives administrators the ability to enforce uniform enterprise authentication and/or authorization policies across the enterprise. It allows end-to-end user audit sessions to improve security reporting and auditing and save content administrators from having to understand and implement user role security in each of their child portals.

Support For Multiple Domains

By provisioning multiple LDAP paths you have the ability to support offsite domains. You can configure your DNN log-in to elect your network organisation and share your intranet portals across your organisations.

Auto Sign-in Authenticated Users

Once your users are logged into your domain they can get instant access to your DNN intranet portals. Skipping tedious duplicate log-in processes and getting them to the resources they need quicker.
