Setting up and managing domains

A domain is a set of users and groups that User Management uses as a source directory for obtaining user information. User Management supports three types of domains:

Enterprise domains: Consist of users and groups that reside in a third-party storage system, such as an LDAP directory. User Management does not write to the third-party storage system. Instead, User Management synchronizes the user and group information with the User Management database. Enterprise domains also use an external authentication provider, which can be LDAP, Kerberos, SAML, or a custom authentication provider.

Local domains: This type of domain is not connected to a third-party storage system. Instead, users and groups are created locally and reside in the User Management database. Passwords are stored locally, and authentication is done using a local database.

Hybrid domains: This type of domain is not connected to a third-party storage system. Instead, users and groups are created locally and reside in the User Management database. Unlike local domains, hybrid domains use an external authentication provider, which can be LDAP, Kerberos, SAML, or a custom authentication provider.
