U of I Box, Active Directory Group Sync
What is Box Active Directory Group Sync? How can I request my Active Directory group be synchronized to U of I Box?
- The full distinguished name of the Active Directory group (example: CN=Project Team,CN=admin,DC=corp,DC=Fabrikam,DC=COM)
- A requested display name for the group in Box. This should be specific and include a reference to your unit or department.
- If you would like the group to be universally visible or not. If the group is not universally visible, only members of the group will be able to share with it.
Who can invite my Box Group to collaborate? Can someone outside the group invite the group?
Box Groups are only visible to members of the group by default. They can be made visible to all members of our U of I Box domain by request.
My team members are not all included in the Box group. Why is that?
Box Groups can only contain members of our U of I Box enterprise. Please have them verify their account type is Enterprise in Account Settings. Contact email@example.com to join the enterprise.
How often does the synchronization process run?
The synchronization process runs on the hour. The frequency may be changed in the future if needed.
Are nested AD groups supported?
Yes, our process reads the membership of nested AD groups.
Will group members receive email notification when the group is added to content?
No, group invitations do not trigger email notifications. The user will be notified of new collaborations on their next visit to Box Web.
