Now we will guide you through the configuration in the Workspace so that the environment is ready for sync requests from the AD synctool.
Enable sync from Active Directory
To enable Active Directory sync:
- Login into Workspace environment as an administrator.
- Go to settings Settings.
- Go to Users & Groups.
- Select Active Directory.
- Check the checkbox Enable sync from Active Directory.
- Click on Done. A new authentication token will be generated and displayed in the corresponding field.
- Copy the Sync API authentication token. You will need this in the next step.
Manage Workspace 365 Admin role from AD or Workspace
Under the Active Directory settings in the Workspace, you can manage the admin role from Azure AD or the Workspace. When this is set to Azure AD, users with a IsAdmin flag in Azure will be set in the Workspace as an admin (this is the Global Administrator). By default, the "Manage admin role from..." is set to Azure AD. When this function is set to Workspace 365, you can determine from Workspace which users need to have the admin role.
Proceed to step 3.
