Configuring Active Directory Sync

This topic describes how to initially configure synchronization for your Active Directory with Kore.ai using the Kore.ai cloud-based connector or the Kore.ai Directory Agent.

Accessing Active Directory Sync Configuration

How you access the Active Directory Sync configuration depends which type of connector you are using. Complete one of the following procedures to access the Kore.ai Active Directory configuration.

To configure sync using the cloud-based connector

To configure Active Directory using the cloud-based connector, you must log on to the Bots Admin Console, and complete the following steps to access the configuration settings for your company Active Directory sync.

  1. In the Enrollment module, on the Directory Sync page, click Cloud-Based Connector. The Configure section is displayed.
  2. Click Configure. The Configure Synchronization with you Company Directory dialog is displayed.

To configure sync using the Kore.ai Directory Agent

To configure Active Directory using the Kore.ai Directory Agent, the Kore.ai Directory Agent service must be running. You are prompted to log on to Kore.ai using your Bots Admin logon credentials, and then you can configure the settings for your company.

  1. On the Windows Start menu, click All Programs, and then in the Kore.ai Directory Agent folder, click Kore.ai Directory Agent. The Kore.ai Bots Admin Console log on screen is displayed.
    Note: You may have to right-click the program shortcut, and then click Run As Administrator.
  2. Log on to Kore.ai using your Kore.ai Bots Admin Console credentials. The Directory Agent window is displayed.

    Note: To log on to the Kore.ai Directory Agent, a custom admin must have privileges enabled for Enrollment – Directory Sync.

Active Directory Sync Configuration

Complete the steps in the following procedure to define the synchronization settings. If you have already defined your synchronization settings, you can modify the settings and initiate manually started syncs. For more information, see Manually Start a Sync with Active Directory.

In the following procedure, the cloud-based connection settings dialogs are displayed. Configuration for the Kore.ai Directory Agent uses the same steps.

  1. On the Connection tab, define the following fields:

    1. Host Name – The name of the domain host, for example, MyCompany.com or
    2. Server Port – The port number for the domain host, for example, 10042.
    3. Base DN – The server location for users and groups in a domain, for example, dc=kore,dc=com.
    4. User ID – The username for authentication used to connect to the domain controller.
    5. Password – The password for authentication used to connect to the domain controller.
    6. SSL – Select to enable SSL for HTTPS.
    7. Test Connection – Click to test the authentication and Host configuration settings.
    8. Click Save and next to continue.
  2. Optionally, on the Organizational Units tab, you can select Import Org Units from Active Directory. Click Save and next to continue.
  3. Optionally, on the Distribution Lists tab, you can select Import Distribution Lists from Active Directory.
  4. On the Users tab, you can define the Active Directory user profile information that you want to import from your organization using predefined mapping of Kore.ai user profile fields to relevant LDAP attributes. You can also create a custom mapping on the User Attributes child tab. On the Exclusion Rules child tab, you can create rules to limit incoming user records for the user data.
  5. Optionally, on the Kore.ai Exclusions tab, you can define exclusions for synchronization to prevent Active Directory from replacing specific users, distribution lists, or organizational groups.
  6. On the Schedule tab, enable and define synchronization with Active Directory as shown in the fields in the following illustration.

    1. Enable Synchronization – Click to enable or disable a synchronization schedule.
    2. Synchronization Frequency – Select one of:
      1. Daily – Specify the Start Synchronization date and time to begin the daily sync.
      2. Weekly – Specify the day of the week to synchronize and the Start Synchronization date and time to begin the weekly sync.
      3. Monthly – Specify the day of the month to synchronize and the Start Synchronization date and time to begin the monthly sync.
      4. Other – Specify the number of DAY(S) or WEEK(S) to synchronize and the Start Synchronization date and time to begin the sync.
  7. Click Save to save the synchronization settings and close the Configure Synchronization with your Company Directory dialog.
