Password Sync

AD LDS Active Directory Integration

AD LDS is a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory service, providing both data storage and retrieval support for directory-enabled applications. Aside from AD DS, AD LDS is the only other identity provider supported by Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) for authentication purposes and to supply claims to federation-aware web applications. 

Password synchronization to the rescue

Now that everyone uses a wide range of applications, remembering usernames and passwords is harder than ever. Thankfully, developers have come up with a solution: password synchronization. Password synchronization 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 you change the password in ADSelfService Plus, the change will be replicated across all connected applications.

How to integrate AD LDS with Active Directory for Password Sync?

Follow the steps below to configure password synchronization for AD LDS server using ADSelfService Plus.
