Connecting to your company directories

You can connect 
BlackBerry UEM
 to your company directory so that it can access the list of users in your organization. You can connect 
BlackBerry UEM
 to multiple directories and the directories can be a combination of both 
Microsoft Active Directory
 and LDAP.
When your company directory is connected, you can take advantage of the following features:
  • You can create user accounts in 
    BlackBerry UEM
     using user data from the directory, and 
    BlackBerry UEM
     can authenticate administrators for the management console and users for 
    BlackBerry UEM Self-Service
  • You can link company directory groups with 
    BlackBerry UEM
     groups to organize users in 
    BlackBerry UEM
     the same way that they are organized in your company directory. See Enable directory-linked groups.
  • You can enable onboarding for specific groups in your company directory to create 
    BlackBerry UEM
     users automatically. If you enable onboarding, you can also configure offboarding to delete device data or user accounts when users are removed from groups in your company directory. See Enabling onboarding.
If you do not connect 
BlackBerry UEM
 to a company directory, you can manually create local user accounts and authenticate administrators using default authentication.
