Active Directory

Seq Business and Enterprise editions support integration with Active Directory, simplifying user account and credential management.

To enable Active Directory authentication, either enter the domain to use for authentication when setting up the first administrative user.

If you wish to enable Active Directory authentication on an existing instance, this setting can be found in Settings > System.

With Active Directory authentication enabled, user accounts by default will still need to be added by a Seq administrator.

If you wish, you may permit all domain users to access Seq automatically by checking the Automatically Provision User Accounts option in Settings > System:



If you find Seq is unable to authenticate users, you may consider:

  • All users need to be authenticated on the same specific domain that is configured for the server (this will also be displayed on the login page)
  • The Seq server machine must trust the domain in question

Detailed error information can be found in the Seq log files.
