LDAP/AD Sync to WorkfrontFeatures | The Problem
Is your Workfront instance connected to your LDAP/AD system in order to ease the login process for your users? If yes, read on.
The way the current SSO setup in Workfront works is that it automatically logs in the user if they have authorized to the network which is great as the user doesn’t have to remember another username and password; the user creation in WF is simplified as you can set Workfront attributes to map to the LDAP/AD attributes.
What doesn’t happen is that when a user leaves the company and is deactivated in LDAP/AD, they do not get deactivated in Workfront resulting in licenses that are assigned but not in use. Since the user stays active in the system, the user shows up available for assignments to tasks and projects creating a scenario that no one wants to be in.
The Access Management Utility from Aurotech lets you automate user management within Workfront and keeps your Workfront instance in sync with AD/LDAP. The utility also helps in the maintenance of the organizational structure within Workfront.
The outcome is that you free up your licenses without having to spend time doing license management, ensuring no work is routed to users no longer working in the organization and you don’t have to spend manual effort to maintain your organization’s chart within Workfront.
