Application Compatibility Policy for AD Connector

As an alternative to AWS Directory Service for Microsoft Active Directory (AWS Managed Microsoft AD), AD Connector is an Active Directory proxy for AWS 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 AWS applications and services:

Note

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