Integrate Analytics with Microsoft Active Directory

Connect your Active Directory and import user information and user groups available in your organization’s domain to Citrix Analytics. This integration enhances the user profiles in Citrix Analytics. On the user profile page, you can view information such as job title, organization, office location, email, and contact details for a risky user. You get a better visibility of the risky user profile. The User Groups page displays the list of user groups imported from your Active Directory.

Note

Currently, integration with Active Directory is supported only for the United States and the European Union regions. If your organization is onboarded in other regions, Citrix Analytics does not receive events. For more information about supported regions, see Geographical Considerations.

Prerequisites

Before connecting your Active Directory to Citrix Analytics, you must first connect Active Directory to your Citrix Cloud account. For more information, see Connect Active Directory to Citrix Cloud.
