Managing Users, Roles, and Groups → About User Import → Importing Users and Groups From LDAP → Importing LDAP Groups
Use the Import groups from LDAP to import and update specific groups from LDAP.
While you can also import groups via the Import users from LDAP operation, that operation is limited to the groups that are identified by the combination of group attributes and group query parameters that are applied to the user object in LDAP. In addition, only the group name is imported with the Import users from LDAP option and users are added to the group in SBM after the group is imported. You cannot easily update group membership from LDAP thereafter using the Import users from LDAP option.
The Import groups from LDAP option enables you to target specific LDAP groups, import and update their attributes, and manage group membership directly at the group-level. This is a much easier way to manage group membership because it starts at the group-level in LDAP (as opposed to managing membership by updating individual users). However, it is important to note that groups in LDAP must have knowledge of the users that belong to each group; the group import is only useful if group membership is known to each group in LDAP.
