What can the Active Directory Connector do?

Youzer's Active Directory connector allows you to perform account administration operations on your Active Directory in an automated way and without having to connect to the server (or servers if you have several Active Directories).

It is therefore possible to automate the creation of accounts directly on your Active Directory.

You can manage the most common attributes: FirstName, LastName, FullName, DisplayName, Organizational Unit.

It is also possible to view and edit attributes like EmployeeNumber, JobTitle, LogonScript...

To manage the skins, you can also view and modify the security groups of the different Active Directory accounts.

Extended Attributes can also be filled in automatically when accounts are created or even modified at a later stage.

The password reset of an account can be initiated directly in Youzer (by an administrator or even by an end user thanks to our self reset module "AppCenter".

When a user leaves, the suspension of an account can be automated. It is also possible to modify the scripts to customize them and, for example, to automatically move the account to a Storage Organization Unit when a user leaves.

How does the Active Directory connector work?

Since Active Directory is installed on your on-premise servers, it is necessary to deploy a Youzer agent on one of the Active Directory servers. This agent will act as a proxy to communicate with the Youzer platform: it is not necessary to open incoming ports on your firewall. The only port to use is 443 in outbound.

Exchanges between your Active Directory via the agent and the Youzer platform are doubly encrypted with a hybrid symmetric and asymmetric key.

What is Active Directory?

Active Directory is a Microsoft LDAP directory. Active Directory or AD is an identity management and authentication services system for Windows-based computer networks. It provides a centralized structure for information on users, computers, devices and applications, and enables access authorizations for these objects to be controlled. Active Directory is used to facilitate identity management and security on corporate networks.
