Active Directory User Import

This section explains how to search for and import users from Active Directory into the Bold BI application.

NOTE: An Active Directory connection must be configured in the Active Directory Settings on the General page in order to import users. This feature is available in On-Premises Deployment but not in Syncfusion Managed Cloud Server.

Only users belonging to the System Administrator group can import Active Directory users into the Bold BI application.

Search Users

You can search for Active Directory users using any of the following properties and select them to import into the Bold BI application:

  • User name
  • First name
  • Last name
  • Email Address
  • Display name

A maximum of 1000 users will be searched and retrieved from Active Directory in a single request.

The Bold BI application will search for users within the specified distinguished name provided in the Active Directory settings page and display the search results in the grid.

NOTE: The Bold BI application will rely on the user’s email for authentication purposes. If the imported user does not have an email address, the Bold BI server will automatically generate an email for that user. For example, if the username is John and the domain name is, then the user will be imported with the auto-generated email
