What is an Identity Source?


An Identity Source is a connection between an Active Directory (AD), Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), Clearlogin Directory (CLD), Amazon Web Services (AWS), or Google Apps user database (also known as an Identity Provider) and is able to authenticate users against them.

For example, you could link Active Directory to a Clearlogin Identity Source by clicking on Identity Sources in the navigation bar and then selecting Add New.

You will be brought to the Add A New Identity Source page where in this case you would select Active Directory.

On the New Active Directory Identity Source page you can configure such options as User Domain, Hostname, and Search Filters to help connect your Active Directory database and narrow down which OUs (organizational units), groups, etc. that are to be searched.

Once you have configured your AD Identity Source, any user that is in that AD database will be able to log into Clearlogin with their AD credentials.

Once a user logs in for the first time, an account will be automatically provisioned for them (visible by clicking on Settings and then selecting User Profiles on the navigation bar).
