Is there a way to say, "Hey Crowd, create a group called 'All_Managers' from our Active Directory. Look for all users in the AD who have Employee Type set to 'M' and only pull them into the new Crowd group."
Okay - I probably can't do that with voice commands, but is there some way to accomplish this task?
Thanks for any direction.
Thanks for asking this question here. Just to make sure I understand you well let me rephrase your question:
You would like to create a group 'All_Managers' just locally in Crowd (I assume not in your Active Directory). Later on you would like to synchronize users from that Active Directory and those who has Employee Type set to 'M' (I assume this is a user property) add to that 'All_Managers' group? Is that fair summary?
If the situation you are looking at is as I described above, here is configuration you could give a try in order to achieve that:
(I assume that you already have a directory for all your users which is mapped to applications in Crowd, I will call this 'All Users Directory'
Let me know if the proposed solution works for you.
In general I would recommend connector directory which would periodically synchronize your users and their memberships from Active Directory. But delegated authentication directory should work as well, although you may be running into problems with user accounts that are no longer active as delegated authentication directory does not clean up by default such users. There is a plugin for that on our marketplace though.
