How the Active Directory Connector (ADC) works

The My1Login Active Directory Connector (ADC) extends your AD domain into the My1Login cloud Identity registry enabling seamless single sign on to the My1Login system.  

The ADC supports bi-directional communication using Web Sockets on port 443 to the following hosts:·


You should ensure that connectivity to these hosts can be established from the host machine of the AD Connector. You will not be required to open any inbound ports on your firewall.

AD Object Synchronisation

The ADC synchronises AD OUs, Security Groups and Users with corresponding objects in the My1Login registry.  The ADC monitors your domain for changes (e.g. users added to groups, user account status changes, etc.) and sends those changes to My1Login. 

User Provisioning

AD Users, who are synced to My1Login, may connect to the My1Login system.  User access respects the status of the corresponding AD user object and permission to access token based sites may be tied to users’ security group membership.

Internal users (those within the enterprise network) may seamlessly connect to My1Login without needing to enter any credentials when browser extensions have been deployed.

My1Login settings can be set so that External users (those outside the enterprise network) may login to My1Login using their AD credentials.  The ADC provides a bridge between My1Login and your Active Directory.
