Procedure for Active Directory Groups

 

  1. Create a new or choose an existing group on the domain controller that will be allowed Admin access in Awingu. We will use the Awingu-admin group as an example.
  2. Add the users as a member of this group in the Active Directory.
  3. Open the Awingu's System Settings > Manage > Labels.
  4. Use the [Import Groups from AD] button.
    Alternatively, use [Add] to manually create the label:
    • Key: group
    • Value: should be the name of the group: Awingu-admin
    • Press [Add] to create the label.
