Working with Active Directory

To create a connection to Active Directory domain, you need to use One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine in conjunction with a special connector called Active Directory Connector. This connector is included in the One Identity Quick Connect Express for Active Directory package.
Forward link attribute. This is a linked attribute that exists on a source object (example: the member attribute on the Group object). Forward link attributes can be single-valued or multivalued.
Back link attribute. This is a linked attribute that can be specified on a target object (example: the memberOf attribute on the User object). Back link attributes are multivalued and they must have a corresponding forward link attribute. Back link attributes are not stored in Active Directory. Rather, they are calculated based on the corresponding forward link attribute each time a query is issued.

Creating an Active Directory connection

2
Click Add connection, and then use the following options:
Connection name. Type a descriptive name for the connection.
Use the specified connector. Select Active Directory Connector.

On the Specify connection settings page, use the following options:
Any available domain controller in the specified domain. Allows you to connect to an available domain controller in the Active Directory domain you specify. In the Domain text box, type the fully qualified domain name of the domain to which you want to connect.
Specified domain controller. Allows you to connect to a specific domain controller in a particular Active Directory domain. In the Domain controller text box, type the fully qualified domain name of the domain controller to which you want to connect.
Active Directory forest. Allows you to connect to the Active Directory forest you specify in this option. When synchronizing data to or from a connected forest, Quick Connect Sync Engine automatically selects the appropriate domain controllers in the forest to read and write data according to the synchronization scope configured for the connection.
Secure Sockets Layer usage. Use this list to select one of the following:
None. Allows you to connect without using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
Use. Allows you to connect through SSL.
Preferred. Allows you to attempt the connection through SSL first. If this connection attempt fails, the Sync Engine tries to connect without using SSL.

Optionally, you can narrow the number of objects participating in the connection scope by setting up filter conditions: on the Connection Settings tab, click the Advanced item to expand it, and then use the following list columns:
Object type. Use this column to select the Active Directory object types for which you want to configure filter conditions: click the Add Object Type button to add an object type to the list. Once you have added an object type, use the Filter condition column to specify a condition the objects of that type must meet in order to participate in the connection scope.
Filter condition. Use this column to specify a filter condition for the corresponding Active Directory object type. To specify a filter condition, type an LDAP query. The Active Directory objects that meet the specified filter condition will participate in the connection scope. When no filter condition specified for an object type, all objects that belong to that type participate in the connection scope.
