Add Users from Windows Active Directory

Use the LDAP Servers tab to provision users who have accounts in Windows Active Directory. You can use this approach to provide access to Windows domain users who are working remotely. Authentication and group membership are managed on the LDAP server. Each time the user logs in, current information is retrieved from the LDAP server.

To provision users from an LDAP server

  1. Connect to User Manager and log in as an administrator.
  2. Click LDAP Server.
  3. Click New.
  4. Enter information for connecting to the server. For details, see LDAP Server Configuration.
  5. Click Test Connection to confirm that User Manager can access your LDAP server.

    Note: The Test Connection button verifies the connection but does not save your settings.

  6. Click Save.

To view LDAP users and groups

Note: You can view users and groups that are brought in from an LDAP server, but cannot modify them; these users and groups are managed on the LDAP server.

  1. Click the Users or Groups tab.
  2. Use the drop-down list to select your LDAP server. If you don't see your server, return to the LDAP configuration page and confirm that you saved your settings.
