Introduction to Active Directory

Active Directory

AD (Active Directory) is Microsoft’s implementation of LDAP. Integration with AD provides customers with a range of possibilities for reducing administrative overheads. Users and membership in groups have to be administered only in one system (AD). Password security rules defined in AD are visible in DigaSystem. Synchronized accounts can be (temporarily) disabled. Users benefit from single sign-on capabilities. The detailed configuration of the groups for DigaSystem is done in DigaSystem
