Wrong help text for Active Directory plugin

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      It's very confusing for someone who doesn't know either LDAP or AD well to read
      in the Active Directory plugin's help:

      "With this option, Hudson authenticates the username and the password through
      Active Directory. For this to work, Hudson must be running on a Windows machine
      that belongs to the domain. (To run Hudson on a Unix system and have it
      authenticate against Active Directory, use LDAP.)"

      According to a discussion in the mailing list it works, though:
      http://www.nabble.com/LDAP---Active-Directory-failing-to-authenticate-td18347093.html

      "It looks like the help wasn't updated. Mine says that too but it works find on
      RHEL. I was running AD plugin version 1.4. I just upgraded to 1.5 and that
      also works."

      Thus, the help text should be fixed.
