Creating directory-linked groups
You can create groups in
BlackBerry UEMthat are linked to one or more groups in your company directory. These
BlackBerry UEMgroups are called "directory-linked groups." Only directory user accounts can be members of a directory-linked group.
At a scheduled interval,
BlackBerry UEMautomatically synchronizes the membership of a directory-linked group with its associated company directory group (or groups). Users that were added or removed from the company directory group are added or removed from the directory-linked group.
When users are moved into a company directory group that is linked to a directory-linked group, they are assigned the policies, profiles, and apps that are assigned to the group. When users are removed from a company directory group that is linked to a directory-linked group, the policies, profiles, and app are removed from the user.
Each directory-linked group can link to only a single company directory. For example, if
BlackBerry UEMhas two
Microsoft Active Directoryconnections (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.
Synchronizing directory-linked groups does not add or delete users in
BlackBerry UEM. To allow
BlackBerry UEMto create user accounts when new company directory users are created, you must enable and configure onboarding. For more information, see "Enabling onboarding" in the on-premises Configuration content or the cloud Configuration content.
