Importing groups from AD in WR

I am trying to import my AD groups into WebReporter in order to run acivity reports off of AD group memebership. Has any one been able to do this in WebReport 5.2.0?

Re: Importing groups from AD in WR

Under Directory/Advanced I have the Group Key set to memeberOf. I also have the directory feeding into the log source. When I try to search for the group with search criteria, I get no groups match search criteria. (Attachment 1) , but I am able to find all the groups when I choose "find now" without any criteria (Attachment 2).  And when I choose a group through the only way that works, It does not add the group to the filter criteria.

Re: Importing groups from AD in WR

Because your directory type is Active Directory, the group key is assumed to be "memberOf".  However, the "group key" value is used to override that value to some other attribute on the user object, but must be a single value, like "department".

So edit your directory and leave the group key empty.  Then on your group filter you should be able to search the directory and add groups to filters.  After you save the filter, do a directory update to populate the DB with group assignments.
