Active Directory is Microsoft's domain controller service.

In case your company is using Active Directory to manage the employees you can now connect Gtmhub with Active Directory and automatically onboard all your users to Gtmhub.

What does it do?

  • Allow users to login to Gtmhub with their Active Directory credentials
  • Automatically creates Gtmhub users from your Active Directory once they log in
  • When a user is removed from your Active Directory he will no longer have access to Gtmhub
  • Map Active Directory roles to Gtmhub roles

Prerequisites

In order to be able to connect Gtmhub with your Active Directory instance you will need following:

  • Enterprise edition of Gtmhub
  • You need to be Gtmhub administrator
  • Azure Active Directory rights to approve Gtmhub's request to read from the directory

Setup

  • Log in to Gtmhub
  • Navigate to Setup > Configuration > Single Sign On
  • Make sure the first drop down is configured for Office 365 / Azure Active Directory

Note: If you don't see Active Directory option it means your edition of Gtmhub does not support Active Directory (contact us for more info)

  • Enter your Active Directory domain. Usually that is the portion of your corporate email after the '@' sign. For example the domain name of JohnSmith@example.com is 'example.com'. 
  • Click Test connection button
  • If the domain is valid and the connection was successfully established you will see the following screen
  • Now, you need to give Gtmhub rights to read your Active Directory information. To do so click on the Open confirmation screen button or send the link to your Azure Active Directory administrator to authorise the Gtmhub integration. 
  • If you have permissions to allow Gtmhub to read your Active Directory, you will see a screen similar to this one. Click on the Accept button.

Once the connection has been successfully established, you will see your Active Directory connection in Gtmhub.

Optionally, you can go here and map your Active Directory roles to Gtmhub roles. For example, you could decide that Active Directory role "hr" maps to Gtmhub role "admin", which theoretically will allow everyone in the company from the Human Resources department to be a Gtmhub account administrator.
