Post Installation:

  1.     Replace the model of the 'user' provider inside config/auth.php > 'model' => App\Modules\Bgtsldap\Models\BgtsldapUser::class,
  2.     Go to your main angular js file. public/Modules/default/js/default-main.min.js
  3.     Include 'bgtsldap' as a dependency of the app. > angular.module('bgts',['defaultnavigator','bgtsldap'])
  4.     Go to the bgtsldap_users table and modify the value of the account except the password. The password value is just used to make sure the Auth service provider will work.
  5.     Inside any view, include any of the following tags:

Login Form


Logout Modal

Application's User Registration Form
Only admins can view this. yourdatabase.bgtsldap_users.admin = 1

To show modals as popup:

<a ui-sref='bgtsldap-loginform'>Login</a>

<a ui-sref='bgtsldap-logoutform'>Logout</a>

<a ui-sref='bgtsldap-registerform'>Register</a>


The "bgtsldapUser" object will be created after a successful login. You may refer to the object by using:


    Use the default Auth::user() object from Laravel.


    A Cookie named bgtsldapUser - This should always be identical with the Server's user, essential for SPA application.
    AngularJS $cookies $cookies.getObject('bgtsldapUser');


    If you get any error, it is recommended that you run these via console:

    composer dump-autoload

    Re-serve the application. php artisan serve
