    Setup SQL (ODBC) User Directory Connector

    Imtiaz Ullah

      Hi all,

       

      I am trying to see if QS allows authentication from an "internal" sql database using my own security model.

      I came across a poor piece of documentation on how to try this but it's not very clear.

       

      I have successfully setup the connector however and it has pulled my users into the User section in QS.

       

      What I cannot understand though is how I can now use the account to login to QS from the front end?

      In addition there is nothing around the password authentication part - like do I even need to store this in the database?

       

      This part of the system is not clear at all and whilst using LDAP/AD is very well documented, the SQL approach is very poor.

       

      Or perhaps I am misunderstanding this particular functionality, and it's not even designed for this?
