Sync Active Directory role mapping
Manually or automatically synchronize (sync) role mappings between the Active Directory and Control Room.
Automatically synchronize Active Directory role mapping
By default, synchronizing between Active Directory and Control Room occurs by default at the time interval of 1440 minutes (one day). The time interval for synchronization can be changed in the Active Directory role mappings main page.
Manually run or restart synchronizing Active Directory role mapping
To run or restart automatic synchronizing between the Active Directory and Control Room, do this: From the Control Room go to the Active Directory role mappings page and click the Sync roles from Active Directory option.
This starts the synchronizing process immediately and continues to run it automatically based on the time interval set.
Cancel automatic synchronizing Active Directory role mapping
To cancel automatic synchronizing between Active Directory and Control Room, do this: From the Control Room go to the Active Directory role mappings page and click the Cancel Sync option to turn off the periodic automatic sync.
Events that require Active Directory role mapping sync
Sync the role mappings whenever these events occur:
- Changes to AD groups
If any group that is mapped is deleted from the AD, the mappings must be validated before they are deleted because the group is no longer available.
- Update to the license file
Updating the license file can change the available roles. Mappings must be synchronized before updating the roles.Note: After a sync, the user must wait a few seconds for the updated changes to appear.
