Application compatibility policy for AD Connector

As an alternative to Amazon Directory Service for Microsoft Active Directory (Amazon Managed Microsoft AD), AD Connector is an Active Directory proxy for Amazon created applications and services only. You configure the proxy to use a specified Active Directory domain. When the application must look up a user or group in Active Directory, AD Connector proxies the request to the directory. Similarly, when a user logs in to the application, AD Connector proxies the authentication request to the directory. There are no third-party applications that work with AD Connector.

The following is a list of compatible Amazon applications and services:


Amazon RDS is compatible with Amazon Managed Microsoft AD only, and is not compatible with AD Connector. For more information, see the Amazon Managed Microsoft AD section in the Amazon Directory Service FAQs page.
