Step 1: Create a Directory Connection

  • Add a User Directory connection
    • Configure the connection user
    • Configure the options
    • Configure the scope of the connection
      • Option A) Set the Base Distinguished Name
      • Option B) Filter on Group Membership
      • (Optionally) Set the User Relative & Group Relative DN's
    • Click "Test the connection" button (v7.9.0+)

Step 2: Import the Security Groups

  • Import the Security Groups you wish to bring into Password Server, which can be given access to folders/entries. Note: that by filtering by Group Membership can simplify finding roles.
    • Importing Groups
      • Groups will be imported as "Roles"
    • Import Options
      • Also Assign Roles - users are auto-assigned Roles based on their existing security group membership
