LDAP Authentication

If LDAP is enabled and configured properly, users will be able to log in with their LDAP credentials. If the user does not already have an account in Mealie, then one will be created.

If the user already has an account in Mealie and wants to use their LDAP credentials instead, then you can go to the User Management page in the admin panel and change the "Authentication Backend" from Mealie to LDAP. If for whatever reason, the user no longer wants to use LDAP authentication, then you can switch this back to Mealie.

Head's Up

If you switch a user from LDAP to Mealie who was initially created by LDAP, then the user will have to reset their password through the password reset flow.
