Active Directory user account automation for schools
Provision students in AD from your SIS data with your rules
The ReadWrite Digital Integrator agent for Active Directory (AD) provides school IT with fully automated account setup based on data from your student information system (SIS) or other sources. Our hosted solution detects any new or modified student or staff information in your SIS (e.g. PowerSchool) or other source (e.g. HR system) and immediately updates your AD accounts and group membership based on your rules. This eliminates manual AD account data entry on your part.
Custom rules without custom costs.
Integrator and its AD agent are built specifically to address the needs of schools. This includes combining the ability to meet the unique needs of your school while at the same keeping a lid on costs. How did we manage that? Almost a decade of R&D and feedback from schools, that’s how. You benefit from that experience by having a robust automation tool that conforms to your needs, not the other way around. Here are just a few examples:
- AD password management based on student grade level
- Group assignments based on a combination of grade level, school, subject areas or other unique attributes
- Population of custom AD attributes
- Complex integration of data from multiple sources, if needed
Configure. Monitor. Analyze.
Integrator‘s fully-featured web portal puts you in control with: agent configuration, job management, job monitoring and data analysis. It also includes:
- Smart Notifications. Job-status notifications for users you designate. If you need to login to the portal and take a look at something, Integrator will let you know.
- Critical Safeguards. Fault tolerance and “safeguard” protections to ensure source data issues do not corrupt the directory.
More benefits of the Integrator AD agent
No More Account Editing
All (not just some) appropriate SIS changes are automatically detected and synchronized with AD. If another system (e.g. HR) holds data required for AD account provisioning, that can be included as well.
End-to-End Account Provisioning
When students, teachers and staff are added, updated, or removed from the SIS, these changes are automatically reflected in their AD account. This includes hard or soft deletes, OU assignment, user name changes, etc.
You specify the rules to govern account creation, updates and deletes. For instance, usernames, default passwords and email addresses are created according to your needs and can be tailored to such things as grade levels, etc.
Users can be assigned to an unlimited number of groups based on your rules and/or data in the SIS and other systems.
Multiple Data Sources
External data can be combined with SIS data, if needed, for more complex account management requirements.
