There are two ways users can authenticate in SameGoal.
By default, users authenticate with SameGoal using an email address and password.
Login over LDAP (Active Directory, eDirectory, etc) is recommended when your district supports it.
LDAP authentication allows users to login to SameGoal using the same username and password they use for other district applications (eg email). When SameGoal is configured for LDAP authentication and a user logs in, username and password are sent directly to your district LDAP server. The user's LDAP password is not stored. The server then sends back only a Yes/No answer as to whether authentication succeeded.
LDAP authentication is typically configured by district IT staff during implementation.
