Microsoft Azure Active Directory connector

This is a cloud connector.

The Azure Active Directory connector gathers data about users and devices from Azure Active Directory.

In order to connect Azure Active Directory to the Neurons Platform, you must create an app in Azure Active Directory first. For information on creating the app, see the article in the Community:

How to set up an Azure Active Directory (AD) or Azure Intune Connector

An Azure Active Directory connector has the following options:

  • Connector name: A name for the connector.
  • Connector server name: For cloud connectors, this server is the Cloud option on the Connector Servers page. If you already added the connector to the Cloud option, this field will be populated for you. Otherwise, select Cloud from the list.
  • Directory (tenant) ID: The ID of the tenant you created in Azure Active Directory.
  • Application (client) ID: The ID of the application you created in Azure Active Directory.
  • User threshold and device threshold. To limit the amount of data that is gathered for Neurons, set a threshold for a specific number of days. The connector will not include records unless the user or device has been created, logged in, or updated during that time.
  • Client secret: The client secret associated with the application you created in Azure Active Directory.
  • Repeats: How often the connector should gather data.
  • Start time: The time of day the connector should start running. To minimize the impact on your network and applications, we recommend that connectors generally run at night or on weekends.
  • Active: Whether the connector is active or not. While the connector is active, it runs according to the schedule you create. If you clear the check box, the connector is inactive and will not gather data until the check box is enabled again and the connector is saved.
  • Action Credentials. The credentials Ivanti Neurons uses to perform actions and queries on device or people records. The types of available actions and queries will depend on your specific work environment.

For details on configuring or using connectors, see Setting up connectors.
