Active Directory

Overview

Active Directory is Microsoft’s primary authentication service widely used in Enterprise organizations and even via Microsoft’s cloud services. While Active Directory also supports LDAP protocol support (which Morpheus can integrate with as well), the main Active Directory integration can also be utilized. It is even possible to map Active Directory groups to equivalent Roles within Morpheus .

Note

To use Active Directory, a valid / trusted SSL certificate must be in place on the Active Directory services (self signed will not work).
