LDAP and Active Directory Integration

Authenticate your constituent users with established protocols.

Simplify authentication with your existing network

Active Directory (AD) Integration
Finalsite's Active Directory Integration is used to synchronize user accounts between a school's Active Directory system and Finalsite. This is most commonly useful for Faculty/Student account creation. We synchronize a limited set of data points that are available in Active Directory, such as job title and phone number. The mapping is flexible so it can be modified. If additional data points are required/desired, we can add them, in most cases.

Azure Integration
For schools that are using Azure, we have a dedicated Azure connector that allows us to create and update users based in Azure Active Directory. As with all of our integrations, we can modify the mapping to best suit your needs. Additionally, we can support data and schema extensions to pull additional information in the sync. The integration runs hourly to create and update your users.

LDAP Authentication
You can currently use the integration in tandem with our LDAP Authentication feature so that users can log into Finalsite via your LDAP server. This keeps management of user credentials in Active Directory. 

ADFS Authentication
Finalsite can allow constituents/users to authenticate into Finalsite using your in-house ADFS system as the Identity Provider. This is configurable by admin group or constituent role, so there is some flexibility in how your users will authenticate. This is done using a SAML 2.0 connection.
