Docebo Connect is a Docebo module acting as a connector between your platform and third-party SaaS systems, helping you to integrate your platform with more than 400 third-party external systems, reducing the integration effort.
Docebo Connect offers a large catalog of connectors for the most popular SaaS systems, to manage automated workflows (called recipes) shared among systems in order to exchange and share data on the basis of triggers.
This article describes the process of using Docebo Connect recipes to facilitate the importing and updating of users via Microsoft Entra ID (previously known as Azure Active Directory).
For more information on the definition of terms and concepts used throughout this article, please read Docebo Connect Glossary of Terms.
Activating Docebo Connect
Docebo Connect is a paid product. To activate Docebo Connect on your platform or sandbox, please reach out to your Docebo Account Manager.
Before you start
All the recipes for this integration can be found in the project's folder. This folder should be considered a “special folder” as all the recipes contained within are subject to automatic updates. As such, any customizations you make to recipes located within the folder can be overwritten by Docebo. In order to prevent such an occurrence, it is strongly advised to create a new project folder for any recipes you wish to use in production and copy or clone the recipes from the project's folder inside.
Prior to configuring and using the integration, you need to make clones of all the recipes used in this integration. For more information on how to clone and edit a cloned recipe, please see Docebo Connect Usage: Copying Recipes. The list of recipes that need to be cloned can be found in the Recipes chapter of this article. All recipes that call a sub-recipe will require editing, the called sub-recipes can be found in a list inside the recipe description.
