Mapping Groups from a Directory Server

If you're provisioning users from a directory server, you can maintain permission groups in Jive or use your LDAP permission groups.

Fastpath: Admin Console: People > Settings > Directory Server Settings > Group Mapping

Keep in mind that if you switch between maintaining groups in Jive and in LDAP after your initial setup, you will need a migration strategy.

To connect your LDAP groups to Jive :

  1. In the Admin Console, click People > Settings > Directory Server Settings
  2. Make sure you've defined a valid connection to an LDAP directory server in the Server Configuration screen. (If you don't have a working connection defined, you won't be able to see the rest of the configuration screens.)
  3. Define and save some User Mappings.
  4. Select Group Mapping.
  5. Select Use LDAP to manage Groups and provide the group mapping information for your directory server.
