Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) is a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory service providing both data storage and retrieval support for directory-enabled applications. Aside from Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), AD LDS is the only other identity provider supported by Active Directory Federation Services for authentication purposes and to supply claims to federation-aware web applications.
Now that everyone uses a wide range of applications, remembering the username and password of every application is quite challenging. Thankfully, there is a solution: password synchronization. It enables users to log in to all their applications using a single username and password. This is where ADSelfService Plus comes into play.
To get started with password synchronization, all you have to do is configure the applications you are using in ADSelfService Plus. Once this is done, whenever a user changes their password through ADSelfService Plus, the change will be replicated across all connected applications. The AD LDS integration with Active Directory is explained below.
Follow the steps below to configure password synchronization for the AD LDS server using ADSelfService Plus. Having AD LDS synchronize with Active Directory will make password synchronization possible.
Note: You can also find the ADS LDS Server application that you need from the search bar located in the left pane, or the alphabet-wise navigation option in the right pane.
Note: ADSelfService Plus allows you to create OU- and group-based policies for your AD domains. To create a policy, go to Configuration > Self-Service > Policy Configuration > Add New Policy.
Note: The username and password must belong to the administrator account of the server in which AD LDS is installed.
