Adding users to Crowd from a AD directory

Hello,

I am new to Atlassian.

In Crowd, we have created a Directory (called it D), that is "Delegated authentication directory", and that is tied to our Microsoft Active Directory.

When I do a "Add user" to D, it shows a screen with fields for email address, user name, password ...

I thought we can just search the user, by email say, and add them to D.

With password is being a required field, does it that only the users themselve can add themselve to D, and we as admin cannot add users?

Or there is a way to add users or import users from the Microsft Active Directory without knowing the users' password?

Thank you

With a delegated directory the user is automatically added when they log in - you don't have to add them. With a connector directory the users are synchronized over in batches periodically.

Please see this article - it refers to Confluence but is accurate for Crowd, too.

Please review these docs for Crowd, they should help you understand your options:

Configuring a Delegated Authentication Directory

Configuring an LDAP Directory Connector

Please let me know any follow up questions.

Thank you Ann! 

I read up on the articles you provided, and found they contain very useful information to help us learning more of the Atlassian tools!
