About Chrome Microsoft Active Directory Integration

Chrome Microsoft® Active Directory® Integration lets you fully integrate your organization’s Chrome devices with a Microsoft Active Directory server. This means that you can easily join devices to your domain and see those devices in your on-premise domain controllers.

Note: Chrome Microsoft Active Directory Integration is only available for Chrome Enterprise. It is not available for Chrome Education. If your organization has Chrome Education, you can use Google Cloud Directory Sync.

After you integrate Chrome devices with a Microsoft Active Directory server:

  • Your managed users can authenticate natively with their Active Directory credentials. This means you don’t need to synchronize their usernames to Google device management servers.
  • You can manage sessions and push policies to both users and devices with Group Policy Objects.

Important: This feature integrates Chrome devices with servers that are governed by different terms of service. Any data processing conducted by these servers falls outside the terms governing the use of Chrome Enterprise.

For detailed steps on how to setup Chrome Microsoft Active Directory integration, see Integrate with Microsoft Active Directory.
