LDAP agent for automated user provisioning

The LdapSync agent can synchronise identities and other data from a source LDAP directory (MS Active Directory, OpenLDAP, etc.) to a target LDAP directory with a Json2Ldap web gateway in front of it.

If you are a SaaS provider you can distribute the agent to corporate customers to automate the onboarding and synchronisation of selected LDAP user accounts and attributes. The OEM license permits branding and embedding. Contact Connect2id sales to inquire about that.

Operation

The LdapSync agent can be installed on premise or in the cloud, to provision LDAP user accounts and attributes to a secure Json2Ldap web API.

Synchronised changes:

  • New user account creation.

  • User account updates.

  • User account deletion.

Types of LDAP data:

  • Text attributes.

  • Binary attributes.

Directories can have different schemas for representing user data. To ensure interoperability the agent supports mapping of attribute names between the source and the target LDAP directories.

The attribute values can be optionally transformed with a regular expression. Such transformations may be used to change the base DN of group members when the target LDAP directory has a different base DN (domain).

The synchronisation algorithm of the LdapSync agent is generic and can handle other types of LDAP data besides user and group entries.

The data to be synchronised is pushed over HTTP(S).

Customise and brand

The LdapSync agent is shipped as a Java application (JAR) and a simple command-line utility. Its configuration and monitoring API enables easy customisation and branding.

Example customisations:

  • Furnish the agent with a branded UI to match the application's appearances.

  • Add a configuration wizard.

  • Add reporting and monitoring screens.

  • Embed it into a web or desktop application.

Supported LDAP directories

The LdapSync agent supports any LDAP v3 compatible directory.

Runtime

  • Java 8+
