Update Users in the LDAP server

The update user feature in the Drupal LDAP/ Active Directory module allows you to automatically update the information and roles of the user in your LDAP server when the user information is updated in Drupal. This is one of the key features for keeping all your user information and roles in sync between your Active Directory/ LDAP and Drupal site. In addition, if you want to update user information in Drupal based on changes in the LDAP server, this will be handled when the user logs in to Drupal using their LDAP credentials or during importing the users from LDAP to Drupal.

Enable the update of Drupal users to the LDAP server:

  • Head over to the Directory Sync tab of the module.
  • Enable the “Update user information in Active Directory/LDAP when user information is updated in Drupal” checkbox.
  • miniorange icon active directory integration LDAP integration
  • Click on the Save Configuration button present at the bottom.
  • Done, your users will be updated in the LDAP server whenever updated in the Drupal site according to the configured attribute and role Mapping. ( by admin or by user registration, or by any third-party modules )
