What Are the Benefits of Setting Up ADI?
Integrating KnowBe4 with your Active Directory (AD) allows you to add your users and groups from your AD to your KMSAT console and makes the process of managing your users and groups easier. To learn more about the benefits of integrating your AD with KnowBe4, see the sections below.
User Management Benefits
ADI allows you to manage your user list in KnowBe4 through your AD. When changes are made in your AD, these changes will be automatically updated in your KMSAT console during the next sync. For example, any time you add, archive, or change a user in your AD, the same action will happen to your user in your KMSAT console.
Additionally, instead of manually creating and managing user groups in KnowBe4, if you use ADI, you can sync user groups from your AD, and these user groups will be automatically created in your KMSAT console.
Phishing Campaign Benefits
When setting up ADI, you will specify the user information that you want to sync from your AD into the user profiles in your KMSAT console. When you add this user information to your console, you can create better phishing templates by using our user information placeholders. These placeholders pull the data from your users' profiles and allow you to create more targeted phishing templates that you can use in your campaigns.
Additionally, when users are added to KnowBe4 through ADI, they will be automatically added to phishing campaigns that are assigned to All Users and automatically added to phishing campaigns that are assigned to the groups that these new users were added to.

Training Campaign Benefits
When users are added to your KMSAT console through ADI, they will be automatically added to the appropriate training campaigns where the Enable automatic enrollment for new users setting is enabled. To learn more, see our Creating and Managing Training Campaigns article.
