Active Directory Provisioning

Keeper AD Bridge supports automatic provisioning of nodes, roles, teams and users across any size Active Directory environment.

The Keeper Bridge is an enterprise-class service application that supports the ability to automatically sync Nodes, Users, Roles and Teams to your Keeper Enterprise account from an Active Directory or LDAP service. To activate and install the Keeper Bridge, follow the below steps:

  1. Login to the Admin Console and turn on Show Node Structure from Configurations

  2. Create a Node to sync with your Active Directory

  3. Visit the Provisioning tab and select "Add Method" and select Active Directory Sync.

  4. Download the Keeper Bridge and proceed with setup.

Keeper Bridge supports single and multi-domain, multiple forest domains and other complex environments. The Bridge also supports high-availability mode and a variety of custom configuration options based on your AD/LDAP environment. The Keeper AD Bridge Guide documents the full setup process.

  • The Keeper Bridge does not authenticate users into their vault with their Active Directory password. For seamless user authentication, consider our Keeper SSO Connect add-on as described in the next section which authenticates against Active Directory via AD FS.

  • Automated Team provisioning requires the Keeper Administrator to authenticate on the Keeper Bridge. The Bridge will poll for users who have created their Keeper account after invitation, then the Bridge will encrypt the Team Key with the user's public key, and distribute the Team Key to the user. Once any member of the team logs into the Vault, all members of that team are approved.

  • Once the Active Directory Bridge is syncing, we recommend not making manual user or team changes directly on the Admin Console. Delegate all user and team provisioning to the bridge through Active Directory. Role enforcement policy changes should still be made on the Admin Console.

For detailed Bridge setup and install instructions see the Keeper Bridge Guide.
