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?
First of all AD Users are supported but please not it’s not actually for the Portal user it self. it is more for the services such as cloud storage (webdav) , ftp, web, exchange, lync, sharepoint, and remote desktop services
- AD Users are managed through the SolidCP portal and it pretty much requests the information live from Active Directory. so if you make any changes there everyone else should pick it up.
- The registration, purchase, and payments in this scenario are then handled by WHMCS. Once whmcs has received the payment it automatically creates the user in SolidCP with it’s hosting plan and (if chosen) some resources automatically deployed.
Do note that whmcs will have the Portal login, it allows you to click on “go to panel” where it automatically logs you in.
However if the password has been changed in the portal it will not automatically update in whmcs, once that happens the user will need to type it’s login after clicking go to panel in whmcs.
In the end whmcs / SolidCP isn’t really SSO (yet) but the services that SolidCP works with pretty much is. (storage, exchange, sharepoint, lync, skype for business, RDS)
