I am trying to solve a problem that I think has already been solved by others. But, my experience on this topic is limited, so I haven't found the answer yet. My post is lengthly, please bare with me. : D
I have a service that I'd like to provide to the public but that service needs Active Directory to function. I am trying to think of ways on how a user can register to my website and that person's account gets created in Active Directory automatically. And, any account changes that the user makes, gets synchronized to Active Directory.
What I've thought of doing so far:
Option A: An export job from MySQL and an import job to Active Directory using a csv file triggered by a scheduled task - So far I think this could work but it's not efficient
Option B: Direct sync from MySQL to Active Directory using some sort of a connector - I don't know how to do this.
Option C: Hire a 3rd-party site Developer - My resources are limited, this option will be my last resort
Option D: Other ways to solving this problem
For Option B: Is it possible to connect a MySQL Database to Active Directory to when a user account is created through my website it also creates the account in Active Directory automatically? I am thinking that I need some type of a connector between two databases, does anyone know how to do this?
For Other Options: To keep this post short and not too broad, I won't post my questions for my other options, but if you have other ways to solve my problem please feel free to post them here.
Thank you in advance!
