Import users from Active Directory

Aug 14, 2017

To import users from Active Directory, AppDNA must be connected to the Active Directory domain and be running with credentials that grant read access to the user accounts within that domain.

Active Directory groups authentication is supported. In order for Active Directory groups to be able to be added to AppDNA, the AppDNA server must be running as a domain user.

To import users from an Active Directory domain

  1. From the AppDNA menus, choose Administration > User Management > Users.
  2. Click Import from AD. This opens the Windows Active Directory Object Picker, which you should complete as described in Microsoft documentation.
    AppDNA then searches Active Directory for matching users and adds them to the list of users in the User Management screen. The new users are automatically selected and the AD Linked check box is selected for each one. This means that the users are automatically configured for integrated login, described in About integrated login.
  3. New users added from Active Directory are automatically saved to the database. If you want to change any of the default properties imported from Active Directory or assign the user to a different role, make the changes, ensure the relevant user rows are selected, then click Save.
