Adding User Directory User/Groups

Before you begin

Set up your LDAP connection and enable it for SOTI MobiControl console authentication.

About this task

To enable the use of LDAP credentials to access the SOTI MobiControl console or the Self Service Portal:


  1. On the All Platforms tab, select the Security tab.
  2. Select the Manage Users option from the left pane of the console.
  3. Click Add and select User Directory User/Group from the drop-down list.
  4. Select an LDAP connection from the Enter user and/or group names: drop-down list.
  5. Enter a user or group within the LDAP connection and click Add. Include the domain as a prefix when entering individual users. Example: DOMAIN\user
    You can add multiple users or groups at once.
  6. Under the Global Permissions section, use the Allow and Deny boxes to set permissions for access to the SOTI MobiControl console and the Self Service Portal.
    Unspecified permissions will default to Deny. See Global Permissions for information on specific permissions.
    1. Note: Alternatively, you can associate your LDAP group to a local SOTI MobiControl group to automatically apply the local group's permissions to the LDAP group.
      Under the Membership section, move existing user groups from Available User Groups to Selected User Groups using the arrows.
  7. Click Save in the bottom right corner of the SOTI MobiControl console.
