Identity Management (EE vs CE)

Guaranteeing that only the right individuals have appropriate access to your workspace and every conversation there is essential. With Rocket.Chat, you can connect to your Active Directory application or Identity Management System through Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), Open Authorization (OAuth), and Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML).

LDAP / AD

In your workspace, leverage advanced settings such as background sync, roles mapping from groups, auto-logout, and advanced user data sync with LDAP. Here are some differences between the community and enterprise editions when using LDAP.
