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?
Thank you Marco for you response,
I don’t understand about you mean in this paragraph, could you give me more description please?
- 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.
I want provide more information about my project, that you can be give a solution that better than of my solution.
I want, my end users, can be register in to a portal and access to their client area that this area should be have below features:
1- View and modify their information like password, name, avatar, etc
2- View and management their billing (Payment, etc)
3- View enable services like infrastructure (Ram,CPU,Storage), Software (Exchange, Lync, Sharepoint, Skype, DNN, WordPress, etc) that I want provide these as a service.
4- Select what they want from enable services and issue invoice for their selection and pay it.
5- View status of purchased services and modify or remove its.
For implementation above features, my solution is good?, or you can provide a better solution?
Can WHMCS be a portal with these features? or I should select another portal? And a big question: If I use WHMCS, my end users coming to portal and register. Their information record in SolidCP. This mean, information of end users don’t record in AD? This mean, I should register end users information on AD to form of manually?
Excuse me for long text, But I have really problem with this scenario.
