CloudGen Access User Directory Connector

  • Last updated on

This program retrieves users and groups from multiple sources and syncs them into a CloudGen Access tenant. Multiple user sources are available, and there are specific configuration steps depending on which ones you use. The user sources for a connector are activated through the CloudGen Access Console.

Installing a Connector

The first step to configure a User Directory connector is to create one in the CloudGen Access Enterprise Console > Settings > User directories section. This step will return a secret token in the form of a URL that needs to be passed to the connector configuration. To add a user directory, see Add User Directory.

This program utilizes the same configuration system as the CloudGen Proxy Orchestrator, so all options can be configured using command-line arguments, environment variables, docker secrets, AWS SSM, etc. Click here for more information on parameters.

A connector can be installed on a CentOS using RPMs, or any Debian-based OS. It can also be run directly on any modern Linux (it is a single static binary), or using a docker container. The examples in this article use docker for installation. See Install in Bare Metal / Virtual Machine for CentOS and Debian/Ubuntu install steps.

The only mandatory configuration parameter is the enrollment_token, which you obtain from the CloudGen Console when you create a new User Directory.

To use docker for installation:

docker run -it fydeinc/fyde-connector --enrollment-token=''
2019-08-30 19:05:18 - Running Fyde Connector version 1.0.0
2019-08-30 19:05:18 - Initializing Sync Manager for connector

By default, a connector runs forever and runs its user/group syncing every 15 minutes. This behavior can be changed through other configuration options described in the parameters for each source.


This program allows you to sync using multiple different directory sources:

Depending on the source(s) used, you will need to provide some extra information (such as the address of an LDAP server, for example).
