Integration of AD Users to UCMDB CI

Hi,

We need to have user information from our Active Directory in UCMDB. I have found the LDAP_Active_Directory_Topology adapter but users are not included.

 

What would you suggest? Have somebody written a custom adapter that fetch AD user information and stores it in UCMDB CI?

 

Hope that somebody can help or point me in the right direction.

 

Kind regards,

Malin

Powershell is your friend. Write a custom adapter that runs something like Get-ADUser with a filter for anything you don't want. Then just create person CI's.

Thank you. That could work. Have you tried it yourself for AD topology?

 

Kind regards,

Hi,

 

We wrote a fairly basic discovery adapter that queried users and specifically thier manager property in AD, and then built topology based on  person>responsibility>person structure.

 

So it worked well for our use case.
