Campus Active Directory Services

Campus Active Directory Services enable participating departments to take advantage of centralized NetID-based authentication, while allowing for delegated administration of local resources. This allows departmental IT administrators to assign group policies, manage security groups, and deploy software while taking advantage of the convenience of NetID authentication and authorization using institutional or locally-maintained data.

Benefits

  • Active Directory Services can facilitate authentication to local resources (such as a workstation) with NetID.
  • Departments can utilize Active Directory Services without investing in new hardware or software.
  • Administrators can utilize the test and development environments to test changes before applying them in production.
  • Administrators can use institutional data for authorization to resources through integration with Manifest.
