Active Directory Authentication

This integration enables using your Active Directory user authentication settings in Demisto. Users can log in to Demisto with their Active Directory username and passwords, and their permissions in Demisto will be set according to the groups and mapping set in Active Directory.

This integration requires the Read Access permission or higher.

To set up the integration on Demisto:#

  1. Go to Settings > Integrations > Servers & Services
  2. Locate the Active Directory Authentication integration by searching for it using the search box on the top of the page.
  3. Click Add instance to create and configure a new integration. You should configure the following Active Directory and Demisto-specific settings:
    Name: A textual name for the integration instance.
    Server IP: The Active Directory server you are using.

    Security Type: The security type you are using to connect to Active Directory such as none, SSL or TLS.
    Do not validate server certificate: Select to avoid server certification validation. You may want to do this in case Demisto cannot validate the integration server certificate (due to missing CA certificate)
    Use system proxy settings: Select whether to communicate via the system proxy server or not.
    Demisto engine: If relevant, select the engine that acts as a proxy to the server.
    Engines are used when you need to access a remote network segments and there are network devices such as proxies, firewalls, etc. that prevent the Demisto server from accessing the remote networks.
