Technical Accounts

Hi there,
I’m new to Zato and is toying with the idea of using the Technical Account against our authenticated ldap server. I could not find any document from the web that describe this use case. Can someone who has experience in using Technical Account share its usage? Thanks in advance.

Hi @hongfai,

Technical Accounts were really meant to be used more like API keys, this is basically what they are. I’m afraid it would not really be possible to combine them with LDAP.

However, what we are working on right now and what will be ready within 2-3 months, along with several new features lined up, is integration with HashiCorp’s Vault:


This will let you transparently plug in any authentication backend to use with services - LDAP, GitHub and a few more including.
