Managing Users, Roles, and Groups → About User Import → Importing Users and Groups From LDAP
SBM enables you to import and update users, groups, resources, and Contacts record information from a directory using LDAP.
LDAP requires external setup, which varies based on the LDAP provider you are using. In general, these instructions assume that your LDAP system is configured and that you have access to it and understand basic LDAP concepts. If you will use a secure connection to LDAP, refer to Preparing LDAP for SBM for information about preparing CA certificates for use with SBM.
Use search filters to specify the users you want to import, and then import those users as "copies" of an existing SBM user. You can choose to create Contact records for imported users as well. For details, refer to Importing Users from LDAP.
You can import LDAP users as contacts by mapping LDAP user attributes to Contacts table fields, and then importing selected LDAP users. For details, refer to Importing Contacts From LDAP.
You can update mapped LDAP attributes for all SBM users and contacts at once. You can limit the number of users you update by product-access type, account status, or by using a search filter to select a set of users and/or contacts to update. For details, refer to Updating Users and Contacts from LDAP.
Use a group query to find groups that you want to import, and then import those groups and users. Use this option to import groups, update group membership, and add users that are found in LDAP groups. For details, refer to Importing LDAP Groups.
Consider the following information before you import or update user accounts and contact information from LDAP:
