Hello
For a project I have a strong requirement to manage authenticated users either using a CAS (Central Authentication Service) or as a second option a LDAP authenitcation
Is it something available when developping witthin Kendo UI?

Something else I will need to implement, changing CSS styles on the fly. In other words to be able to download a new CSS style file and change it on the fly?

Should it be easy to develop an app with Kendo UI, managing several languages languages?

many thanks by advance

BR

Hello Bruno,

User authentication is outside of the scope of our Kendo UI framework, however you may consider taking advantage of our Telerik Backend Services authentication endpoints, if applicable.

Changing css styles on the fly for Kendo UI widgets should be possible by dynamically modifying the style links registration in the head section of the page. You can examine how they are switched with the Theme Chooser on our online demos, for instance this one (use the 'Choose theme' dropdown).

Concerning the usage of several languages in your application - you should be able to manage that taking advantage of Kendo UI's globalization framework feature and setting the localization strings for widget messages accordingly.

Hello Sebastian

Thank for your replay
I just noticed this in the Telerik Backend Services : integrate it with your enterprise network using Active Directory integration.
Do you confirm this is something absolutely possible. This is to sure sure to be compatible with a strong and madatory requirement for a project

Thanks

Hello Bruno,

Thank you for your interest.

Telerik Backend Services offer out-of-the-box methods for user management with AD FS authentication. They can be used in hybrid, web, and native applications through the Backend Services clients SDKs.

For a faster "getting started" experience:

- Create a Backend Services project of type "Sample Social App"
- Create an AppBuilder project of type "Friends"
- Connect it to the backend project
- Configure the backend project for AD FS authentication
- In the AppBuilder project navigator, head over to scripts/app/settings and enter the ADFS realm and endpoint:

adfs: {   
    adfsRealm: 'https://api.everlive.com/v1/{{ApiKeyHere}}'   
    adfsEndpoint: 'the url of the enterprise federation services server'
}

The project is now ready to be deployed and tested on devices.

Hopefully, this will be helpful for you. Should any further questions arise, please, do not hesitate to contact us.
