Import/synchronization of users from Active directory

The import of users from Active Directory / OpenLDAP is done by clicking on the Synchronize users from Active directory / OpenLDAP button.

If a user already exists in MedITEX, MedITEX checks if he belongs to other groups and assigns it the according login rights.

If a user doesn’t exist in MedITEX yet, MedITEX would create a new one during synchronization. Name, surname and title would be taken over from Active Directory / OpenLDAP to MedITEX. The username of the MedITEX user will be the same one from Active Directory / OpenLDAP. MedITEX doesn't support all special characters though, as there are restrictions concerning the database username (Firebird username). In order to complete the import, new usernames without special characters must be created. These usernames will only be used internally and are not required for logging in. At the end of the synchronization, a list contains all users imported with special characters and a suggestion for the internal username (MedITEX username) is shown. Usernames can be customized in the list. Users will be able to connect to MedITEX using their Active Directory usernames with special characters.

The easiest way would be to avoid special characters already in Active directory or OpenLDAP.

The synchronization can take a while, because of the connection to the Active Directory / OpenLDAP server.

It is recommended that whenever a change is done on the Active Directory or OpenLDAP server (new users, updated groups, etc.), a synchronisation in MedITEX Administration should be done.

The users which are imported need to be placed in to a group.  

A single user can not be imported.  An arbitrary amount of users can also not be imported. 

All users imported from OpenLDAP for a given subtree (specified by the BaseString parameter) must have a unique ID. 

If there is a migration from Active Directory to OpenLDAP (or vice versa) the existing Active Directory users must be handled accordingly or set to inactive.

Using SSL for OpenLDAP is not supported.
