I have a case when using Microsoft AD integrated in Crowd. Since i want to reduce the scope of users to sync to Crowd from AD so that i need to reconfigure my Base DN in directory connector in Crowd. Is there anyway to add multiple OUs in Base DN? for example: OU=container1,DC=example,DC=local;OU=container2,DC=example,DC=local.
I did google all day but it led me nothing
thanks in advance!
You can't do that with the base DN, but you can use groups in your user filter and only pull in users who are members of specific groups.
Note that I don't use AD with Crowd so you'll need to modify the LDAP syntax a little. This example collects users who are members of either MYGROUP1, OR MYGROUP2, OR MYGROUPX in the USERGROUPS container in the MYCOMPANY organization.
I believe this is correct for AD:
You can also use a similar filter for pulling in the actual group objects.
Hi Duc Pham,
Nope, you can't have multiple User DNs in the configuration tab of your directory.
What you should do here is create one directory per OU. Then, still in Crowd, add all these directories to your applications. For each of your applications, check the "Aggregate group memberships across directories" option in the directories tab.
