Cloud Directory

Every customer is provisioned with an EAA Cloud Directory to provide quick access to applications without Active Directory (AD) integration or to extend third party or contractor access to applications without VPN. By default all users are part of the main Users group. Enterprise Application Access doesn't store or cache passwords for users.

Here are some tasks that you can perform with the cloud directory:

Add users and invite them to the cloud directory

Add and invite, or invite again, users to the EAA service.

Add users to Enterprise Application Access by inviting them to the Cloud Directory. They receive an email with a link to activate their account. If a user is unable to activate their account, the email link may have expired. You cannot check if the link has expired. If you suspect the link has expired, invite the user again.

  1. Log in to Enterprise Center.

  2. In the Enterprise Center navigation menu, select Application Access > Identity & Users > Directories.

  3. Click Cloud Directory.

    The user receives an email with an active link to join the cloud directory.
