Developing programs using Centrify objects

The Centrify Software Development Kit (SDK) consists of the following:

  • Application programming interfaces that packaged in a dynamic link library (.DLL).
  • A compiled help file that includes complete object reference information.
  • Sample scripts in multiple languages.
  • Supporting documentation and reference information for UNIX developers.

On Windows computers, you can use the API to develop your own custom applications that access or modify Centrify-specific data in Active Directory.

As part of the Centrify SDK, this guide also provides detailed information about the underlying Centrify data storage model and how attributes managed by Centrify are stored in Active Directory. This information is critical for developing programs that access or modify Centrify data but are run on UNIX computers.
