Set up directories and identity connectors

As part of identity provider setup, you'll also need to set up directories and identity connectors.

  • Directories. Service that your enterprise uses to manage users and user groups. To authorize user access to domains or URLs, you add directories to ‚ÄčSIA‚Äč and associate them with identity providers. For more information, see About directories and Manage a directory.
  • Identity connector. Virtual appliance that you deploy behind the firewall in your data centers or hybrid cloud environments. Identity connectors allow ‚ÄčSIA‚Äč to synchronize with your organization's Active Directory (AD) or Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) servers. For more information, see About identity connectors and Set up an identity connector.
