Adding data sources for Active Directory or Azure Active Directory

Adding data sources for different target environments

Depending on the target environment, you can add different data sources to collect information from either on-premise Active Directory or Azure Active Directory.

For information about adding target environments, see Adding multiple Active Directory forests and Adding a target environment for native Office 365 .

Permissions needed to collect Active Directory data

To collect data from on-premise Active Directory or Azure Active Directory, you add different data sources to gather information. For each data source, you must specify the credential that is used to collect the data.

In most collections, you have the option to use the credential that is specified for the Data Engine service. If you want to use that credential for your data collections, ensure it has the permissions specified for that data source.

By default, a target environment is configured for the Active Directory forest in which UC Analytics is installed. In the Active Directory Forest / Office 365 (hybrid) environment, you create a Domain Controller data source to collect on-premise Active Directory data.

The credentials that you must specify to collect the Active Directory data have the following permissions:

Alternately, when you add a Domain Controller data source, you can choose to use the Data Engine service credentials if these credentials have read permissions on the Active Directory user objects. You specify the Data Engine credentials during installation.

The Office 365 User Subscription data source data source collects the user subscription information for either a native or a hybrid Office 365 implementation including licenses and subscribed services such as Exchange Online, Skype for Business Online, SharePoint Online, etc.

The credentials that you specify to collect native Office 365 user subscription configuration are used to connect to Azure Active Directory using remote PowerShell. The credentials must:

Additional software prerequisites must be met if you want to collect Office 365 user subscription information. For more information, see the Software Requirements in the UC Analytics Release Notes.
