Microsoft Active Directory (AD) is the most common IdP used with HelloID. Therefore, HelloID offers a fast and easy way to connect to it: Active Directory configurations.
When you create an Active Directory configuration, HelloID automatically creates and configures all the necessary components to synchronize and authenticate via AD. This includes:
Additionally, a configuration specifies which domains and OUs should be synchronized, as well as an Agent Pool which must contain one or more HelloID Agents. The HelloID Agent is responsible for the actual communication between HelloID and Active Directory.
You may add more than one directory configuration if you have multiple AD domains. However, you may only add one directory configuration per unique domain.
To get started, go to Directory > Active Directory.
