The PROJECT in a box server program can help create your PROJECT in a box users consistently with your Active Directory uses. This is useful in the situation where you are using a 'Single-Sign-On' scheme. In this scheme, the PIAB user names must match up with the Windows domain login names.
There are four steps to the syncronisation:
Step 1: Enter your LDAP server name, and the username and password to login.
Step 2: Click Read Active Directory Users to read the user names from Active Directory.
Step 3: Select the users you want to sync. with PROJECT in a box.
Step 4: Click 'Users»' or 'Emails»' to copy over user names or primary email addresses into the PROJECT in a box Database.
When users are added, they are set up as “Contact-Only” user types, which means that by default they cannot log into PROJECT in a box using the client or Enterprise Hub. If you wish these users to be able to log into PROJECT in box then please use the PROJECT in a box client (using and Admin account) to setup the appropriate user types and to grant access to specific projects.
