A forum for technical support discussion related to Fogbugz.
An IIS webpage could be configured to use "integrated security". Can FogBugz use this? Is there a mapping of domain users to FogBugz users?
This seems to be very easy!
Also I found it strange that I had to logon with my full name in the demo system. Can't I use my user name?

When you log on to a site using "integrated security" that means that the entire web application starts to run as you. This is possible with FogBugz, but it means that every windows user needs to have the appropriate access to the database, file system and registry.
We've found that this creates an administration nightmare, and so we have configured the web application use either our authentication, or the built-in LDAP/Active Directory integration for those that want to tie it back to their Windows domain infrastructure.
Your user name (full email address in the case of the demo system) and full name can be used interchangeably to log on to FogBugz.
I hope that helps!
I have a situation where we have 40+ users on the FB user db, but would like to move to LDAP auth. The two tokens used by the FB auth are "Full Name" and "Email Address", whereas LDAP would use, I presume, "Username" and..."Email Address"?
Can you recommend a way that we can easily switch from local to LDAP auth?
Yes, just go into the person table and enter the people's username in the sLDAPUid column. FogBugz does this behind the scenes, but if you haven't set up LDAP auth yet, it doesn't know which fogbugz account to link to which ldap account. It uses the name and email to do this, and then stores that connection using the LDAP username in the sLDAPUid field for the future...
