Active Directory sync in Zoho Connect

Active Directory sync in Zoho Connect

What is Zoho Directory?

Zoho Directory (ZD™) is a centralized admin console for easy management of all services in our organization. The prime feature of Zoho Directory is the unification of user management (i.e) all features including adding a user, admin operations for the org, etc., can be done through a single admin console.

What is Active Directory?

Active Directory (AD) by Microsoft is centralized and standardized system that automates network management of user data, security and distributed resources. In simpler words, it allows management and storage of information and provides authentication and authorization mechanisms.
i.e. You can store information of your organization members, include their devices, verify credentials and define their access rights.

What is LDAP?

Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is an open, vendor-neutral, client/server application protocol used to access and manage directory information. It is organized in a tree like structure called Directory Information Tree.
A few of popular LDAP servers are: OpenLDAP, ApacheDS, OpenDJ, 389 Directory Server.

Zoho Directory

Zoho Directory is a simple and secure directory, which helps in syncing user objects and their passwords in Active Directory (AD) with Zoho accounts. Zoho Directory  automatically synchronizes user accounts in Zoho to match the user data in AD. As the synchronization always happen from AD to Zoho, the data in AD is never compromised.

How does Zoho AD Sync work?

  1. It queries your LDAP Server and Zoho Account.
  2. Compares the data in the two lists.
  3. Curates any changes during comparison.
  4. Updates your Zoho Account with all necessary changes.
Active Directory sync can be done only in Zoho Connect's enterprise plan. Only the admin of the network can set up the Active Directory sync.
