Microsoft Active Directory

Active Directory Integration

Through Active Directory integration, you are able to import into Control Center the existing inventory from Active Directory on-premises and from Active Directory hosted in Microsoft Azure, simplifying security deployment, management, monitoring and reporting. Additionally, Active Directory users can be assigned different user roles in Control Center.

To integrate and synchronize GravityZone with an Active Directory domain:

  1. Log in to GravityZone Control Center.

  2. Go to Configuration > Active Directory > Domains and click add.png Add.

  3. Configure the required settings:

    • Synchronization interval (in hours)

    • Active Directory domain name (including the domain extension)

    • Username and password of a user with full view permissions on the entire Active Directory structure.

    • Location in the Network inventory where to display the AD endpoints:

      • Keep AD structure and ignore empty OUs

      • Ignore AD structure, import to Custom Groups

      • Keep AD structure only with selected OUs

    • The Domain Controllers with which Control Center is synchronizing. Expand the Request Domain Controller section and choose the controllers from the table.

  4. Click Save.

Whenever the user password changes, remember to also update it in Control Center.
