Add a User/Group via Active Directory

Configure Active Directory to Import and Map Active Directory Users

Adding users via Active Directory is a three-step process.

1. Install the AD Connector

To install the Active Directory Connector, follow the steps below:

2. Select User Management from the drop-down menu.

3. Select the ACTIVE DIRECTORY button under User Management to get started with the setup.

The AD connector needs to be installed on a domain computer that is always online to facilitate AD authentication.

4. The connector can be installed on a computer in the Domain using the wizard.

5. Alternatively, you can download and install the connector on a computer in the Domain manually.

2. Connectors Detected

The connectors will show up in the wizard once they have been installed.

1. Select a Connector; this will populate the AD tree on the next screen.

3. Add Users / Groups

Add Users or Groups once the AD tree populates. The instructions below apply to both Users and Groups; the only difference is which button you select at the start ADD USER or ADD GROUP.

1. Select ADD USER (or ADD GROUP, the next steps are the same for adding a Group).

2. Select a Domain from the drop-down list.

3. Enter search criteria to Search for a User in the Domain.

4. Click the SEARCH button (optional: use the View Search and Filter to limit your search results further).

5. Select the User(s) to be added from the grid.

Note: To select multiple users, use ctrl + click, or shift + click (cmd + click for Mac).

6. Select a Permission from the drop-down list; see User Roles for an explanation of the different roles available.

7. Click the ADD button.

The User(s) or Group(s) from the AD have now been successfully added to Faronics Deploy.
