Provision users from the AD or LDAP services

If you’re using AD (Active Directory) or LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) for authentication purposes, you can provision user accounts from these centralized, on-premises directory services to ​Akamai MFA​.
This provisioning type leverages the existing ​Akamai​ Enterprise Application Access provisioning capabilities to import user accounts from external AD or LDAP directories.

This user provisioning consists of the following steps:

  1. Install your EAA access and identity connector.
  2. Add your AD or LDAP directory and associate it with your connector.
  3. Create the EAA user provisioning and synchronize new user accounts with ​Akamai MFA​.


Unlike the standard EAA user provisioning, in this case, you don’t need to have EAA and ​Akamai MFA​ on the same contract to set up the provisioning.
