Duo integration

ConductorOne provides identity governance for Duo. Integrate your Duo instance with ConductorOne to run user access reviews (UARs) and enable just-in-time access requests.


Duo’s MFA (multi-factor authentication) and 2FA (two-factor authentication) app and access tools can help make security resilience easy for organizations, with user-friendly features for secure access, strong authentication, and device monitoring.


βœ… General availability. The Duo integration is available to all ConductorOne users.

This integration uses the Duo Admin API, which is available to users on the Duo Beyond, Duo Access, and Duo MFA plans.


  • Sync user identities from Duo to ConductorOne
  • Resources supported:
    • Roles
    • Groups

Set up the Duo integration

A user with the Super Administrator role in ConductorOne must perform this task.

  1. In ConductorOne, open Administer and click Integrations > Duo.

  2. If this is your first Duo integration, the integration form opens automatically. Otherwise, click Add connector.

  3. Choose whether to add the new Duo connector to an existing application (and select the app of your choice) or to create a new application.

    Do you SSO into Duo using your identity provider (IdP)? If so, make sure to add the connector to the Duo app that was created automatically when you integrated your IdP with ConductorOne, rather than creating a new app.

  1. Set the integration owner for this connector. You can manage the integration yourself, or choose someone else from the list of ConductorOne users. Setting multiple integration owners is allowed.

    A Duo integration owner must have the following permissions:

    • Integration Administrator or Super Administrator role in ConductorOne
    • Owner role in Duo
  1. Click Create and add details.

Next steps

  • If you are the integration owner, proceed to Integrate your Duo instance for instructions on integrating Duo with ConductorOne.

  • If someone else is the integration owner, ConductorOne will notify them by email that their help is needed to complete the integration.

Integrate your Duo instance

A user with the Integration Administrator or Super Administrator role in ConductorOne and the Owner role in Duo must perform this task.

Step 1: Look up Duo credentials

  1. Log into the Duo Admin Panel and navigate to Applications.

  2. Click Protect an Application and locate the entry for Admin API in the applications list.

  3. Click Protect.

  4. In the Permissions section, grant the following:

    • Grant administrators
    • Grant read information
    • Grant applications
    • Grant read resource
  5. Click Save changes. Scroll to the Details section, where the integration key, secret key, and API hostname are shown.

  6. Make a careful note of these credentials. We’ll use them in Step 2.

Step 2: Add your Duo credentials to ConductorOne

  1. In ConductorOne, open Administer and click Integrations > Duo.

  2. In the list of connectors, locate and click on the name of the connector with the Not connected label.

  3. Find the Settings area of the page and click Edit.

  4. In the Integration Key, Secret Key, and API Hostname fields, enter the credentials you looked up in Step 1.

  5. Click Save.

  6. The connector’s label changes to Syncing, followed by Connected. You can view the logs to ensure that information is syncing.

That’s it! Your Duo instance is now integrated with ConductorOne.

Configure the Duo integration using Terraform

As an alternative to the integration process described above, you can use Terraform to configure the integration between Duo and ConductorOne.

See the ConductorOne Duo integration resource page in the ConductorOne Terraform registry for example usage and the full list of required and optional parameters.
