RFL200152: Importing users from Active Directory

Importing users from Active Directory


To import users from Active Directory into RayFlow 2.1, first log into RayFlow as a RayFlow administrator, go to Administration > Users, and then press the [Import Users through Active Directory Services] button:


Active Directory Import Settings

LDAP filter: LDAP query that will search the targeted container/object and all sub-objects.

  • Requires at least the name of the domain, which can be in NetBIOS or FQDN format.

        test-domain or test-domain.local

  • This field also accepts an LDAP query in the distinguishedName format, as displayed by the DSQUERY command.

        test-domain.local/OU=<OU Name>,DC=<Domain Name>,DC=<TLD>

Domain: Does not work at this time.

Doman credentials: A domain user that has at least read permission to Active Directory.




Searching the root of the domain:

LDAP Filter: test-domain



Searching an Organisational Unit:

LDAP Filter: test-domain.local/OU=RayFlowTestOU,OU=Raynet,DC=test-domain,DC=local



Searching a Group:

LDAP Filter: test-domain/CN=Users,DC=test-domain,DC=local





Importing the AD users: Select the users that you wish to import, specify the project(s) that they should be assigned to, specify their initial RayFlow password (used only if these users have their AD integration associated removed), and then press the [IMPORT SELECTION] button.


You are now in a position to add the imported users to one or more RayFlow groups:







Due to a recently identified issue, you will need to edit the imported users and correct their Domain value, as the import currently uses the CN or OU value that is immediately after the ‘/’ character within the LDAP query.
