Amazon WorkDocs
Administration Guide

Getting Started with Amazon WorkDocs

Amazon WorkDocs uses a directory to store and manage organization information for your users and their documents. You can create a Simple AD directory using Quick Start or Standard Setup, or create an AD Connector directory to connect to your on-premises directory. Alternatively, you can enable Amazon WorkDocs to work with an existing AWS directory, or you can have Amazon WorkDocs create a directory for you. You can also create a trust relationship between your AWS Directory Service service and a AWS Managed Microsoft AD Directory.


If you are part of a compliance program, such as PCI, FedRAMP, or DoD, you must set up a AWS Managed Microsoft AD Directory to meet compliance requirements.
