Active Directory is a Microsoft software system that stores information about organizations, people, and computer networks in a hierarchical format with LDAP.
Integrations and Connectors
AgilePoint NX integrates in these ways with Active Directory:
- Activities in Process Builder
- Active Directory Synchronization
- Access tokens
Activities in Process Builder
You can use out-of-the-box activities for Active Directory to execute actions in process-based apps.
An activity is a functional unit, or task, in a process-based app. Activities that integrate with a third-party system provide access to the API functionality for that system in a simple, point-and-click, form-entry format. This means that you can easily leverage APIs without writing code.
The following activities are available for Active Directory:
- Add Users To Group
- Create Group
- Create User
- Disable User
- Does User Exist
- Remove Group
- Remove User
- Remove User From Group
- Retrieve Group Members Details
- Retrieve User
- Update User
For more information, refer to the process activities for Active Directory in Process Builder.
Active Directory Synchronization
If your organization uses Active Directory to manage users and groups, you can use Active Directory synchronization (sometimes called AdSync) to synchronize your Active Directory users and groups with AgilePoint NX users and groups. Active Directory synchronization lets you add, change, and delete users and groups in Active Directory, and those changes are automatically reflected in AgilePoint NX.
For more information, refer to How Do I Use Active Directory with AgilePoint NX?.
You can create access tokens for Active Directory.
An access token is a secure object that stores an endpoint (usually a URL) and authentication credentials to connect to a service or technology. Often this is an external or third-party service, like Salesforce or SharePoint, but access tokens can also connect to an AgilePoint NX enviornment, local database, or other types of technologies. Once an access token is created, app designers can simply select and reuse it, rather than entering the credentials each time they are needed.
For more information, refer to Access tokens for Active Directory.
Some information about third-party integrations is outside the scope of the AgilePoint NX Product Documentation. It is the responsibility of the vendors who create and maintain these technologies to provide this information. This includes specific business use cases and examples; explanations for third-party concepts; details about the data models and input and output data formats for third-party technologies; and various types of IDs, URL patterns, connection string formats, or other technical information that is specific to the third-party technologies. For more information, refer to Where Can I Find Information and Examples for Third-Party Integrations?
