Have you added AD as a Identity source in vCenter SSO?
After that you will have to select your AD and make it a default domain, only then the domain will how up in the permissions tab and you will be able to add the AD users to vCenter.

Go to your Web client. Login with Administrator.
Navigate to Administration>Sign-On and discovery>Configuration. Select your AD and then on top there will be a blue globe symbol. Click on that. this will add your AD to default domains.
As shown in the below screenshot
SSO default domain
Once you do this, you can select the vCenter object in home and the click on permissions tab. The when you right-click and Add permission you will find AD domain in the drop down now.

That's what I am saying- when I do that and click on Sign on and discovery nothing comes up- there's no configuration or anything underneath that

You will have to login with  SSO administrator to get that option.
If its vCenter 5.1, the use would be admin@system-domain.
If its a vCenter appliance it would be root user.
