Import Individual Directory Service Users

  1. Go to Accounts > Users > +Add Account > Directory Service User.
  2. Select the directory service that contains the users you want to import from the Directory Service (DS) drop-down box.
  3. In the Search Term box, enter a search string or substring for the user you want.
    A list of DS user accounts containing that string is displayed.
  4. Select the name of the user to import. You can only import one user at a time.
  5. Click Edit Additional Permissions at the bottom of the page.
    In the page that appears, fill in the Account Details section, specifying whether this user is an admin, a manager, or a regular user. Then scroll down and fill in Permissions, Package Deletion, and other remaining sections.
    Important: IBM Aspera Faspex syncs individual directory service users every hour. You cannot sync them manually.
Once directory service users (or groups) are imported, the corresponding users can authenticate with and log in to Faspex. Directory service accounts are similar to Faspex user accounts, although options such as changing the login password are deactivated (since this information is configured on the directory server).
