Connect Active Directory to Citrix Cloud

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

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

To connect your Active Directory to Citrix Cloud

  1. From the Citrix Cloud menu, select Identity and Access Management.
  2. From the Authentication tab, in Active Directory, click the ellipsis menu and select Connect.
  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.
  6. Click Return to Authentication. The Active Directory entry is marked Enabled on the Authentication tab.
