KB-5965: How to invite a large number of AD users to Centrify through Cloud Manager in one time

Applies to: Centrify Identity Service, App Edition



Question:

Is it possible to invite a large number of AD users in one time instead of inviting them one by one?



Answer:

This can be done by adding users to one AD group and then inviting this group to Centrify User Portal.


To invite a whole bunch of users to Centrify User Portal, follow the instructions below:
  1. Create a new group in AD
  2. Add the users into the group created in step #1
  3. Log in to Cloud Manager
  4. In Users tab > click "Invite Users" > search the AD group in the prompt window > select the target group and click “Invite” button
Notes: 

An invitation email will be sent to the group email address if this AD group has an email address. This invitation email does not contain one-time link for the user to login. User will need to enter their credentials to login to User Portal after clicking the link in the invitation email.

Otherwise, user who has an email address in that group will receive this invitation em
ail separately. This invitation email contains a one-time link for the user to login.
