Import Users from AD/LDAP
ZTAA supports integration with different IAM services such as Active Directory, LDAP and Azure Acitve Diretory. Using the directory sync feature, multiple users can be onboarded rapidly via syncing from organisations identity management services. ZTAA can also be used to configure AD as a Primary mode for authentication.
For provisioning users through Active Directory , a gateway must be installed in the same subnet as the AD server.
P.S. Before syncing users from AD it must be ensured that the AD server is reachable via gateway.

- Go to Directory Sync Profile tab under the Identity Management section and Click on ‘Add New’ button.
