Users with certain privileges can add new users and groups to Toad Intelligence Central by importing users/groups from Active Directory®. Which type of user (role) is allowed to add new users is dependent on how Intelligence Central is configured.
To add Active Directory User or Group using the Web interface
Users and groups imported from Active Directory are given the same name in Intelligence Central.
Review the following known issues and limitations.
If an Active Directory name already exists on Toad Intelligence Central then that Active Directory name is not imported. You will be notified of any users and groups who cannot be imported.
Long Active Directory usernames
For Active Directory usernames longer than 16 characters, the Intelligence Central username will be a truncated form of the Active Directory name.
If the Active Directory username has a numeric suffix then up to three digits of that numeric suffix is preserved. For example, Active Directory username very_long_username12 transforms to Intelligence Central username very_long_user12.
Active Directory names containing characters not allowed by Toad Intelligence Central
Active Directory names containing the following characters cannot be imported to Intelligence Central. You will be notified of any users and groups who cannot be imported.
Active Directory supports sub groups (groups within groups). Intelligence Central does not.
When importing an Active Directory group with sub groups the sub groups and users in sub groups are not imported to Intelligence Central.
Use the Authenticate to Active Directory dialog to enter your Active Directory credentials in order to access a list of domains and users when attempting to add Active Directory users (or groups) to Intelligence Central.
To authenticate to Active Directory
In the Authenticate dialog, enter the following information:
|A domain in the Active Directory forest.
|Your username to that domain.
|Your password to that domain.
Remember these credentials on server for future Active Directory access and synchronization—Select this option to instruct Intelligence Central to do the following:
Automatically and regularly synchronize imported Active Directory users and groups.
If you do not select this option, the list of imported users and groups might not be kept in sync with Active Directory.
This dialog is used to add users and groups from Active Directory® to Toad Intelligence Central.
To add users/groups from Active Directory
To refresh the list, click Refresh. The refresh option is available only for domains that are selected for synchronization in Intelligence Central.
Note: This process could take several minutes, depending on the size of the domain.
Select available Active Directory users/groups and move them to the users/groups to be added list.
Click Add Users to add the users/groups to Intelligence Central.
When a group is added, an Active Directory user account is created on Toad Intelligence Central for anyone in the group who does not already have an account on Toad Intelligence Central (in addition to the group account).
Intelligence Central allows you to create a group from existing users. You can include user accounts from both Active Directory and Intelligence Central in one group. Intelligence Central groups are identified by the following icon: .
The user creating the group is the owner of the group. The owner and users with an Administrator role are able to remove the group and edit group properties. If the owner is deleted, then the Administrator (root) becomes the group owner.
Note: Intelligence Central groups use a flat structure and contain any number of users. A group cannot contain sub-groups or nested groups.
To create an Intelligence Central group
In the Create Group dialog, enter a name and add users. Review the following for additional information.
|Give the group a name. A group name can be up to 128 characters: letters, numbers, space ( ), hyphen (-), underscore (_), period (.). The name is case insensitive.
|(Optional) Enter a description.
Any enabled user on Toad Intelligence Central can potentially be a group member. Select the Intelligence Central users to add to the group. Move these users to the Users in this group list. You (the user creating the group) are added to this list by default and can be removed.
The number in brackets following Group Members indicates the number of users in the group.
If the number of users on Toad Intelligence Central is extensive then you may like to filter the list of potential users. You can do this by typing text in the Start typing to find available users box. Remove the text to remove the filter.
