Each directory-linked group can link to only one company directory. For example, if
BlackBerry UEM
has two
Microsoft Active Directory
connections (A and B), and you create a directory-linked group that is linked to connection A, you can link only to directory groups from connection A. You must create new directory linked groups for any other directory connections.
