Set Up Directory Sync

You can optionally set up directory sync to leverage Active Directory user, group, and computer information in Cortex XDR.
Cloud Identity Engine is an optional service that enables you to leverage Active Directory user, group, and computer information in Cortex XDR, and to provide context when you investigate alerts. You can use Active Directory information in policy configuration and endpoint management.
After you finish the setup, Cortex XDR automatically updates when the DSS agent updates.
To set up the Cloud Identity Engine:
  1. Navigate and log into the hub.
  2. Activate and configure your Cloud Identity Engine instance as described in the Cloud Identity Engine Getting Started guide.
    Activating a Cloud Identity Engine instance on your Cortex XDR account will allow you to pair your Cortex XDR tenant with the Active Directory information collected by the Cloud Identity Engine instance. During the Activation step, make sure to take note of the instance name you create.
  3. After you complete the Cloud Identity Engine Getting Started steps, navigate and log into your Cortex XDR management console.
    Wait about ten minutes after you have activated the instance before you do this.
    1. In the Cortex XDR app, select
      Settings ( )
      Configuration
      Integrations
      Directory Sync Service
      .
    2. Add the directory sync service you want to Cortex XDR to use.
    3. In the
      Add Directory Sync Service
      dialog, select the
      App Instance Name
      you created in the hub and
      Save
      .
