Active Directory

JFrog Platform Administration Documentation


The JFrog Platform Deployment (JPD) supports integration with an Active Directory server to authenticate users and synchronize groups.

When authentication using Active Directory is configured and active, JPD first attempts to authenticate the user against the Active Directory server. If the authentication fails, JPD tries to authenticate via its internal database.

For every externally authenticated user configured in your Active Directory server, JPD creates a new user in the internal database (provided the user does not already exist), and automatically assigns that user to the default groups.
