If Azure Active Directory (often referred to simply as AD) is used in your organization, Smartker can provide a single sign-on solution to save users time and increase security when accessing document management software.
Azure Active Directory is a directory structure used on Microsoft Windows-based computers and servers to store information and data about networks and domains. Azure Active Directory has a variety of features including the ability to provide information about objects, helps organize these objects for easy retrieval and access, allows end-user and administrator access, and allows the administrator to configure directory security.
The role and user management module of the document management software can be easily and frequently synchronized with Active Directory users and user groups. It can also be completed with users who do not reside in Active Directory (those who are not members of the domain).
It is recommended that synchronization be performed at the time of initial deployment of the document management software. If the integration is performed after users and user documents have been populated in the library, there may be additional work in reassigning documents and rights to Active Directory users.
