for an online conference, we'd like to use some Cloudron apps as well as an external BigBlueButton server (with Greenlight frontend). Is it possible to integrate the user authentication somehow?
BBB/Greenlight supports several Auth methods.
I have searched the forum and found that using the Cloudron-internal LDAP is being experimented with (but apparently it is not ready for production yet). Then there is the proxyauth addon, but I wouldn't know how to use that functionality for integration ...
So maybe currently it would be easiest to use an external LDAP or Active Directory server for both Cloudron and BBB/Greenlight? Can anyone recommend an affordable provider for that?
Thanks a lot in advance for your help!
@kuchengrab when using the Greenlight App from Cloudron the LDAP is already configured and working.
All users in Cloudron can login via LDAP in Greenlight and use the configured BigBlueButton Server or Cluster if you are using a Loadbalancer like scalelite etc.
If I understand you correctly you have:
- 1x Cloudron
- 1x BigBlueButton
- 1x Greenlight (on Cloudron?)
Or is your Greenlight hosted on the BBB Server?
If so - Why?
Yeah, I've read this discussion to this point three times to make sure I'm confused, and I am. Which piece(s) are you trying to change the authentication method for?
I think he wants to change Greenlight since bigbluebutton has no real user management as I am aware of.
And yes I also read it multible times and still I am not sure
