Map Active Directory roles

Map a single AD security group to one or more Control Room roles. Create the mapping before synchronizing user and roles during the user login or background process.

While there is a nested grouping relationship in the AD, there is no such relationship in the Control Room as they are all one to one mappings.


  1. Navigate to Administration > Roles.
  3. Click Create Role Mapping.
    This enables you to create a mapping between an existing AD security group and the available role.
  4. Enter a name for your mapping in the Mapping name field.
  5. Click the Active Directory domain drop-down list, and select an available domain.
  6. Use the Active Directory security group field to search for a group.
    For example, if you have a group named Certified Publishers, search for Certified. All the groups that contain Certified in their name are listed under GROUPS.
  7. Click the right arrow to add the selected group.
  8. Use the Available Roles to assign a role.
    You can also use the Search name field to search for an available role.
  9. Select the roles you want to assign, and click the right arrow to add it.
    The selected roles are listed under the Selected field.
  10. Click Create Mappings.
