Cisco Directory Connector Deployment Task Flow
Before you begin
|Command or Action||Purpose|
Cisco Webex Control Hub initially shows directory synchronization as disabled. To turn on directory synchronization for your organization, you must install and configure Cisco Directory Connector, and then successfully perform a full synchronization. For a new installation of Cisco Directory Connector, always go to Cisco Webex Control Hub (https://admin.webex.com) to get the latest version of the software so that you're using the latest features and bug fixes. After you install the software, upgrades are reported through the software and automatically install when available.
Sign in with your Cisco Webex administrator credentials and perform the initial setup.
You can map attributes from your local Active Directory to corresponding attributes in the cloud. The only required field is the *uid.
You can synchronize your users' avatars to the cloud so that each user's avatar appears when they sign in to the application.
Use this procedure to synchronize on-premises room information from Active Directory into the Cisco Webex cloud. After you synchronize the room information, the on-premises room devices with a configured, mapped SIP address show up as searchable entries on cloud-registered room devices, such as a Cisco Webex Room Device or Cisco Webex Board
To Provision Users with Cisco Directory Connector, perform these steps:
Follow this sequence to provision Active Directory users for Cisco Webex accounts.You can provision users from a multiple forest or multiple domain Active Directory deployment after you install Cisco Directory Connector 3.0. During the process to onboard users from different domains, you must decide whether to retain or delete the user objects which might already exist in the Cisco Webex cloud—for example, test accounts from a trial. The goal is to have an exact match between your Active Directories and the Cisco Webex cloud.
