Integration with Active Directory lets you Improve Security and user experience. Users can just use their Windows login.
The integration is real time and so, user management becomes effortless for the admins of Prolaborate.
This article explains how to set up Active Directory in Prolaborate.
To configure AD, click on Menu > Active Directory Click on Setup Active Directory.
On clicking Test & Save, Prolaborate will check whether the details you entered are valid. If they are valid, the settings will be saved. Else, you will see an error message and the details will not be saved.
Once the setup is saved successfully, you need to enable the AD Sign-in option to allow the Active Directory users to login to Prolaborate.
You can repeat the above steps if you want users from more than one domain to access Prolaborate.
Select Add from Active Directory option and the appropriate AD domain to add users from Active Directory (AD).
To add an AD user, select By User option
If you can’t locate a user, you can select the top folder and click on Advanced Search.
You can choose the search operators to locate the user easily. Enable Include sub-folders to search for users in the AD Path and all the folders under it.
Use the Select existing users if you want to add Active Directory users whom you have added already to other repositories.
This saves you from the manual effort of adding the same list of users to each repository.
Select the users you want to add and click on Add icon.
Go to Menu > Users page and click on Active Directory Groups. To add an AD Group, click on Add AD Group
All the users who are part of this group will be given the access permissions assigned to the group.
After you have added the users, click on Go Back to go back to the Users page.
You can view the complete details of a user by clicking on the icon in View Details column.
In the expanded view, you can
After you have added the groups, click on Go Back to go back to the Users > Active Directory Groups page.
You can do the following:
Change the Status of the group in the same Edit page.
When you change the status, the users who are neither present in any group in the AD Groups list nor directly added to Users list from AD are shown. You can choose the action you want to perform on them.
Every time a user from an Active Directory group logs in, that user is added to User’s list.
If that user is removed from Active Directory or from the Active Directory group added to Prolaborate, it needs to reflect in Prolaborate as well. This is facilitated by the “Sync Users” functionality in the Users > Active Directory Groups page.
When you click on Sync Users, the users who are neither present in any group in the AD Groups list nor directly added to Users list from AD are shown. You can either choose to inactivate them preventing them logging in to Prolaborate or leave them as it is.
