I'm new to LDAP/AD material, so I'm probably using all the wrong terminology. Unfortunately, even after spending hours looking into this topic, it is quite broad. To compound the issue, I have no access whatsoever to any configuration for our corporate domain.
To the best of my understanding, our domain looks like
-EAST.ad.company.net (I've heard people call these subdirectories, ldap groups, domains)
user shows up as EAST\ABCDE123, WEST\XYZ3243, etc...
The issue I am facing is the need to capture the user's DOMAIN for the purpose of Section Access. If the userid field must be DOMAIN\ID from the windows login, then I have to know these for each user.
When individuals request access to my dashboards, they do so through a portal. Their ID is captured in the process and stored in a SQL table. Unfortunately, we are unable to capture their DOMAIN automatically. We will probably have to rely on them filling it in, but a lot of people won't know their DOMAIN even from a pull-down list of 5 possible options.
Is there any way to continue to use Windows authentication for the automatic log-on into the Hub, but somehow spoof their DOMAIN to be the same?
I thought the Virtal Proxy could be set up so that all users look like the same domain (i.e. SPOOF\ABCDE123, SPOOF\XYZ3243, ...)
