I am working on a cloud project (iaas, paas, saas).
At first, I need a authentication and authorization solution for SSO (Single sign on). I think Active Directory is good solution, because this is integrated with openladp (Linux LDAP solution). At second, I need a cloud (Resource) management, I think SolidCP, MSPControl are good for windows and CPanel is good for linux. At third, I need a sale portal that I think WHMCS is good choice. For implementation this solution, I have any problems or questions.
1- I know SolidCP is integrated with AD and WHMCS. I need more information about it. For example, which solution should be I use that, when end users create profile or change their information (profile or client area) through WHMCS or SolidCP, same information in AD should be changed. If this process is automatic will better, but manual solution not bad.
But, I think, when you speak about integration between AD and SolidCP, you mean is a little replication from AD to SolidCP at the first time (When we are installing SolidCP), and after installation don’t have any replication between AD and SolidCP.
2- When I using AD, SolidCP and WHMCS for basic management of my cloud (iaas, paas, saas), my end users where should register? From WHMCS? or another portal that integrated with AD? could you help me with examples?
No problem ?
and always feel free to ask as you noticed i am always happy to answer any question.
Benefits of SolidCP vs MSPControl:
- SolidCP focuses a lot on a stable build with as little to no errors as a core. with a stable release schedule every 3 months.
- SolidCP is opensource and mspcontrol is closed source.
- With SolidCP i would like to believe you end up in a more user friendly environment
– the look and feel
– the people involved in this project.
In the end you as a user (or maybe contributor in the future? ) have a say in where SolidCP should go, which features you would like to have added (normal roadmap or if it’s important to your business you can push features with paid development with us, or a independent dev).
We got no money goals (not to say no money is made from SolidCP services but it’s not on our priority list. We all come from a background with our own company for 10+ years where SolidCP is done in our spare time).
1- WHMCS user’s information with SolidCP user’s information are same, But these are different with AD user’s information?
2- A person (With one identify like email address) can be have only one account in WHMCS and SolidCP, but can be have many account in AD?
Hosting space menu with all services from solidcp (this is after you logged in with your SolidCP User created by WHMCS)
Users (User Organization) = AD Users with icon of the roles it got (highlighted in red –> in this case Exchange )
You can also go to the “Mailboxes” section (Microsoft Exchange) :
I have selected the mailbox plan in red
End user buy a product from WHMCS –> Create automatically or manually an user information in SolidCP (By WHMCS) –> Create only manually same! or different! user’s information in AD (By SolidCP)
If it’s true, Please help me about same! and different! in part 3 🙂
OK, so my problem will remain. 🙂
SolidCP can’t input user’s information into AD. I have a new question at this time. We could conversely this scenario. We block SolidCP for adding new user through itself, and we forced SolidCP/WHMCS to used AD users.
So, those who have AD account, can be login to SolidCP and buy from WHMCS. In this new scenario, don’t create new user account in SolidCP and I think AD and SolidCP will be match.
Only, I should find a new portal for AD user management. (Adding, Modify, Remove)
This scenario can be correct?
Thank you again for your companionship.
You mean, I will use AD stuff when I used these services in SolidCP:
Exchange, Lync, SfB, RDS ?
My target in this project is “One username and password for all services” and then “Single Sign On”
Suppose, at the future, I will be development any SaaS (Software as a Service) applications that will be integrated with AD (Like Lync or SfB). My priority is, these applications connect directly to AD, but it is not possible, because user’s information in AD not match with SolidCP (If 2st chain is correct -> End user buy a product from WHMCS –> Create an user information in SolidCP -> don’t pass anything information of users to AD for adding).
So, I think best solution for resolve this problem, I should be integrated all my SaaS applications with member DB of SolidCP. This solution not pleasant for me, because I will use the software that currently on the market in 3 years later, And AD have a good market share. I don’t want skip it.
Could you give me a solution for matching AD and SolidCP about user’s information?
I know SolidCP and MSPControl forked from websitepanel. I ask same question in MSPC forum, but there give me different answer. They say 1 chain is correct. That mean:
“End user buy a product from WHMCS –> Create an user information in SolidCP –> pass a copy of same user information to AD”
But you say, SolidCP don’t pass anything of user information to AD for Adding.
