Is it possible to integrate Continuum with Active Directory for access control purposes?

Issue

A prospective customer requires their active directory be integrated into Continuum to eliminate duplication of data entry.

Product Line

Andover Continuum

Environment

  • CyberStation
  • Active Directory
  • LDAP
  • Personnel Import Utility (PIU)

Cause

How can Continuum be integrated to an existing active directory for access control cardholder purposes?

Resolution

Yes, it can be integrated.

The Personal Import Utility is a CyberStation application based on Active Directory.  Active Directory is a Microsoft Windows directory service that provides a unified view of complex networks.  Active Directory is installed on a Microsoft Windows Server, known as the domain controller.  CyberStation uses the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) to read and extract Active Directory user information.

The above is from the CyberStation v1.93 Help System, a portion of which is attached here for reference.
