Integrating a site in the corporate information system usually requires distributing team members’ permissions to access the site resources and management.
A common solution of this problem is creating user groups with different access permissions applied to them and further adding users to these groups. In this case, an administrator may face a need to transfer the existing corporate user groups to the site management system (hereinafter referred to as CMS) to allow users to assess and manage the corporate site resources. This incurs doubling actions required to change access permissions or add a new user to both the corporate network and the CMS: the administrator has to create or edit a user profile in the corporate system as well as in the CMS.
The AD/LDAP module is developed especially for use with Bitrix Site Manager permits mapping corporate network user groups to those of the CMS. This allows to manage user groups of the corporate information system in the centralized fashion.
