    How can we fetch values from active director

    thangam

      Dear all,

       

      we have to connect filemaker pro 14 server with active directory, I need the following confirmation.

       

      1. How can we do that,

      2. Can we fetch the active directory fields values, like name, email, department, contact number from active directory into file maker pro contact database.

      3. Is it possible that once crating he record in Active Directory it should create in FileMaker account able also, and once delete it should get deleted from FileMaker pro also.

       

      Kindly help if some one know he solution.

          Hi.  Do you want to store the values you have mentioned (name, email, department etc) in the records in your FM database or are you asking how users can connect to the FM database using their Active Directory accounts?

           

          To allow users to connect to the FM database using their Active Directory accounts, follow these step:

           

          1.  Go to File>Manage Security> Accounts tab.

          2.  Create a New Account.

          3.  Set the "Account is authenticated via: "External Server"

          4.  Set the name of the new account to be the same as your Active Directory group.

          5.  Assign a Privilege Set.

           

          Then users in that Active Directory group can log in to the database using those credentials.
