I would like to see WHMCS integration with Microsoft Active Directory for Authentication into the admin area.

We are not actively pursuing LDAP/AD integration at the moment, however we are looking at making WHMCS OAuth2 compatible which will allow you to create authentication bridges to services like cPanel.

More details will be coming, so stay tuned at blog.whmcs.com.

I dare say you are correct wispr although the reason i agree is that i would say there is a distinct possibility that the majority of WHMCS client base are running on Linux systems for one reason or another.

RE: running AD, they may well be, but that wasnt my point, my point was they can afford to develop their own workings of whmcs. (or any system they choose for that matter).

We are not all that lucky of course.

I've got lots of Linux appliations running on Linux servers that authenticate against Active Directory - including MediaWiki, RackTables, Zabbix, OpenFire. The first three are even using PHP libraries to accomplish this.

This is done via LDAP, (a fully open standard), and it works great. Even without the 'group membership' integration aspect, a BASIC LDAP implementation would be extremely helpful.

I suspect the folks asking "WHY" have never worked in a business that uses Windows Server & Active Directory.

As for businesses being able to "develop their own workings for WHMCS" - as far as I am aware, the API that WHMCS exposes does not allow for this level of integration, and regardless of that, many quite small businesses use Active Directory.
