Active Directory as Directory versus Application

Question asked by Steve Fuson on Dec 5, 2018

When we onboarded Aveksa, the professional services vendor set up Active Directory as an application, rather than as a directory.  It's not our source of truth for users, so it hasn't been an issue.  But now we're looking to implement Data Access and Governance, and DAG seems to need AD as a directory.  Is that correct, or will DAG work with AD as an application?  What are the benefits and drawbacks of collecting AD as a diretory versus an application (or both)?
