Zoho Directory Integration

Zoho Directory Integration

Zoho Directory is an identity and access management software that allows you to authenticate and manage access provision to multiple products. Users can also manage third-party applications and enforce the organization's security. By integrating with Zoho Projects, the users will be able to access Zoho Projects directly from their Identity Provider.
Feature Availability: Latest user based Enterprise plan


  1. Provide access to authorized users only.
  2. Gain access to multiple applications with a single authorization.
Only users with administrator profiles in both Zoho Projects and Zoho Directory can configure this integration.

Available Configurations

Single Sign-on:

Zoho Directory supports single sign-on, which allows users to access apps with a single login securely.

Security Policies:

Security policies are a set of customizable rules that govern how users can authenticate themselves. They consist of four components:
Password policy: This component dictates how strong the users' passwords must be and how often they have to be renewed.

MFA: Using this component, the user can decide which multi-factor authentication modes to use.

Allowed IPs: This component dictates which IP addresses the user can use to sign in. Any sign-in requests from IPs that aren't allowed will be denied.

Session management: This component dictates how many active sessions a user can have, and for how long.

Active Directory Sync:

Zoho Directory enables you to delegate user authentication and management to your Active Directory. By configuring this, all the user data can be organized and maintained in a common directory. Learn more about Active Directory Sync
