AD integration overview

If you use Active Directory (AD) within your organisation it is worthwhile integrating it with Contensis. Setting up the synchronisation service will allow you to keep the same user credentials between AD and Contensis, removing the need for users to remember an extra password and removing the need to set up all new accounts to be used within Contensis.

In addition to reading user data into Contensis from the AD you can also configure Contensis to update user information in AD when a user edits their details within Contensis.

  1. AD Synchronisation is a service that periodically synchronises users from your AD into Contensis.
  2. AD Update allows the real-time update of AD user records when the corresponding user data is updated in Contensis.

These features can turned on or off independently of each other or run side by side.
