The last months have been great in terms of good stuff happening both in my private and professional life. I’m very happy with the multiple projects I’m working on in the company and the additional handful of pet-projects I’m doing on the side. However, life was so generous to me lately, that one or two opportunities too many have presented themselves to me. I often joke that 24 hours in a day is not enough time to act on all the great ideas. Generally, that isn’t a problem because most ideas can be stored away and acted upon at a later time.

Recently, I joined a new project. As always when this happens, I got a ton of new credentials for websites, platforms and so on. This flood can easily be managed using password managers like KeePass.

I spend quite some time implementing a login using Active Directory via LDAP for our Spring Boot 2 application, using Spring Security. This article outlines the implementation options I faced. On my quest to solve the many problems I encountered with this, I learned that there is not much documentation available in the web. I hope this article is of some help for other developers.

I will use the term "LDAP" when refering to the Active Directory because that's what most developers do when they mean "authorization using LDAP".
