LDAP agent for automated user provisioning

The LdapSync agent can synchronise user accounts from a source LDAP directory (MS Active Directory, Novell eDirectory, OpenLDAP, etc.) to a target LDAP directory with Json2Ldap in front of it.

This simple piece of software can be extremely useful in automating user onboarding and synchronisation to SaaS and web apps in the cloud. Connect2id offers a licence for app providers so they can distribute, typically in some customised and branded fashion, to their subscribers. Contact sales to inquire about that.

Operation

The LdapSync agent is designed to be installed on premise, to provision LDAP user accounts to the cloud according to selected criteria.

It can push / synchronise the following changes:

  • New user account creation.

  • User account updates.

  • User account deletion.

Types of LDAP data:

  • Text attributes.

  • Binary attributes.

Directories can often have different schemas for representing user data. To guarantee interoperability the agent can be configured to perform arbitrary name mapping between the source and the target LDAP directories.

The data to be synchronised is pushed over HTTP.

Customise and brand

The LdapSync agent is shipped as a simple Java command-line utility. It provides a simple configuration and monitoring API so that vendors can customise and brand it to suit the requirements of their application or service.

Example customisations:

  • Furnish with a branded UI to match the application’s style and appearance.

  • Add a configuration wizard.

  • Add reporting and monitoring screens.

The LdapSync agent can alternatively be embedded in a web or desktop application.

Supported LDAP directories

The LdapSync agent can work with an LDAP v3 compatible directory, which are all servers available today.
