The Centrify connector is a multipurpose service that provides support for key features and enables secure communication between other services on your internal network or a cloud instance. Not all services require a connector, however. For example, if all users are Privileged Access Service user accounts, the connector isn’t required.
You must have at least one connector if any of the following apply:
- You are using Active Directory or another LDAP server as the identity store.
- You manage access to applications through an application gateway.
- You are using Privileged Access Services for privilege elevation, privileged account request and approval work flow, or shared password management.
You can install more than one connector to support fail-over and load balancing. If you need to use a connector, you can download the software package from within the Admin Portal
