    Import users from AD

    Haree
      Hi All,

      In AD there is an OU called BIUsers holding a group BIusers. Refer following link:
      http://imageshare.web.id/images/cvxpbmhs64pmg7d7p2nd.jpg

      The Group BIusers holds three members (users) from different OU. I have to import the three users in to BI console.

      I was able to import the group using DN: OU=BIUsers,DC=CORP,DC=NET

      what DN should I use to import list of Users inside a group?

      Kindly help me to overcome this issue.

      Thanks,
      Haree.

              Along the same topic, what if I only want to import users from AD groups? I don't want any users pulled in from an OU, I just want them imported when I add them to a group in AD. (Example: BIConsumers security group in AD)

              Would I use something like this:

              All Users Filter
              (&(memberof=CN=BIConsumer,OU=Groups,DC=mydomain,DC=com)(sAMAccountName=*)(objectclass=user))

              User From Name Filter
              (&(memberof=CN=BIConsumer,OU=Groups,DC=mydomain,DC=com)(sAMAccountName=%u)(objectclass=user))

                Hello,

                If you want users only from particular AD groups you should use the following setup in Weblogic:

                All Users Filter: (&(memberOf=cn=BIConsumers,cn=Users,dc=lab,dc=mydomain,dc=com))

                User From Name Filter: (&(cn=%u)(objectclass=user))

                where BIConsumers is the group name.

                Hope this helps.Let me know if it doesn't. Pls mark if it does !!

                  Hi All,

                  Thanks for the replies.

                  _ The Solution is :_

                  User Base DN : DC=CORP,DC=NET

                  All user Filter : (&(memberof=CN=BIUsers,OU=BIUsers,DC=CORP,DC=NET)(cn=*)(objectclass=user))

                  User from name filter : (&(cn=%u)(objectclass=user))

                  Thanks,

                    Can I leave these empty then if I just want to grab from that one group as previously mentioned?

                    Group Base DN:
                    All Groups Filter: (&(sAMAccountName=*)(objectclass=group))
                    Group From Name Filter:




                    * All Groups Filter had the above by default. It won't let you save it as null/empty.

                      In the Groups section, update the Group Base DN to reflect where you want to search for groups in Active Directory.

                      See this example on how its configured : http://paulcannon-bi.blogspot.com/2012/07/configuring-ldap-authentication-for.html

                      Hope this helps. Pls mark if it does.
