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.
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.
