Active Directory Application



This application is only relevant to those accessing via the Atmos Agent.

Using the Atmos Agent, administrators can allow users to authenticate with Active Directory and access its services. To configure an Active Directory application, admins must specify the Active Directory’s Domain, DNS Servers, and the address of any additional services in the internal network (for example LDAP or Kerberos servers). After creating the application and adding it to the policy rules users can access the Active Directory services.
