Learn how to use the on-premises Cloud Identity agent
to connect to the cloud-based Cloud Identity Engine.
The Cloud Identity agent collects user, organizational
unit (OU), container, computer, and group attributes from your on-premises
Active Directory or OpenLDAP-based directory server and stores them
in the Cloud Identity Engine, a secure, cloud-based infrastructure.
This allows your Palo Alto Networks cloud-based applications to
use the directory attributes to display more context about users and
devices and to help you configure user- or group-based policies.
