Which authentication method to use for ActiveDirectory user authentication?

I am creating a new App on Zapier Developer Forum, I am confused with the Authentication method.

I don’t know which method I can use to authenticate the users from the Active Directory.

I have a custom parameter which I need to take on the login page.

I need the following fields on my login page:

1- CustomerId

2- ActiveDirectory UserName

3- ActiveDirectory Password

When the user came on my App, he/she shall enter the “CustomerId” and then ActiveDirectory UserName and ActiveDirectory Password for the authentication.


Can someone please guide me how to achieve this?

Active Directory uses, I believe, Kerberos, which Zapier doesn’t offer support for.  Perhaps your deployment has another mechanism available to support HTTP based authentication on top of AD, OAuth 2, etc?

I’m hoping someone here in the community more steeped in Microsoft’s ecosystem will chime in with their knowledge to address your question, and add to or correct any of that info.
