Import users from AD

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,
    Haree.

    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.

    Thanks,
