This Week in AEM… Synchronizing LDAP Users & Groups in AEM

Most large enterprise organizations have their own user management system for their employees. So it is no surprise when they purchase AEM that they likely don’t want to manually put everyone into AEM’s user system. Now some projects I have been part of actually did this, but we are talking about a user count of about 15-20 authors, editors, or moderators. So the question is what do you do about getting the users into AEM and supplying them with the proper permissions to accomplish their content authoring needs? Synchronize the account data and map them to an appropriate group with the correct permissions. Federico Rodriguez, from Conexio Group, talks about how to do just that in his blog post “How to synchronize LDAP users and groups in AEM”.
