This article will show you how to set up a user sync with AADFS (AskCody Active Directory Forwarding Service).

AADFS Basics

AADFS is a small Windows Service (installed on client's servers) that forwards object data from Active Directory to AskCody. This service is in installing and running on a Windows server on the client's network and from here accessing the Active Directory, before pushing or forwarding data to AskCody.

This configuration is basically assigning a Group in AD to given User Roles, Memberships or Assignment in AskCody and here by managing user access rights in AskCody using AD.
