Has anyone successfully configured Identity Server 2.0.1 (SC 9.1.1) to use Active Directory? The only official documentation and examples I have seen are with Azure AD (not regular on prem AD). I found this very good blog post (https://sitecore.derekc.net/setting-up-azure-active-directory-integration-with-sitecore-identity-server-sitecore-9-1/) but that is for Azure AD.

It seems odd to me that Sitecore would not provide out of the box support with examples for regular Active Directory. Unless I am missing something and it is simple to set up for regular AD.

  • AD requires creating a subprovider with Sitecore IDs

Sitecore 9.1.0 and later uses Identity server and Owin authentication, so Active Directory module is officially not supported. You need to set up the Federated Authentication.

Refer the Sitecore document where they mentioned the same and also there are steps to setup the Federated Authentication.
