How do I set up the Active Directory Sync?

This article will show you how to manage the Active Directory Sync tool.  This tool is available for On-Premise customers only. The Active Directory Sync tool allows groups/members of your Active Directory to automatically synchronize with the EPM Live Resource Pool.

  1. Select the Settings Gear icon on the Icon Bar.
  2. Under the Utilities heading, select Active Directory Synch.

2. Select Groups to Synchronize

  1. Select the Groups to sync from the Active Directory to the EPM Live Resource Pool.
  2. Use the left and right arrows to add or remove the Groups.
  3. All Groups that will sync will show on the right hand side.

3. Field Mappings

Select which Active Directory fields to map to the corresponding Resource Pool fields.

4. Schedule Type

When Resources in the EPM Live Resource Pool are not part of any of the synchronized Active Directory Groups, you have two options for what to do with the Resource in the EPM Live Resource Pool.
