Connect Active Directory to Citrix Cloud Japan

By default, Citrix Cloud Japan uses the Citrix Identity provider to manage the identity information for all users in your Citrix Cloud Japan account. You can change this to use Active Directory (AD) instead.

Connecting your on-premises Active Directory to Citrix Cloud Japan involves installing Cloud Connectors in your domain. Citrix recommends installing two Cloud Connectors for high availability. For requirements and instructions, see Citrix Cloud Connector requirements.

  3. Click Install Connector to download the Cloud Connector software.
  4. Launch the Cloud Connector installer and follow the installation wizard.
  5. From the Connect to Active Directory page, click Detect. After verification, Citrix Cloud displays a message that your Active Directory is connected.
