Hi,

 

If you are after a point and click method to synchronise AD users with some recommended practices such as tag deleting and an audit report please have a look at Metacoda Identity Sync Plug-in. For some technical detail and a screencast demo of it in action, have a  look at http://platformadmin.com/blogs/paul/2015/07/synchronizing-sas-platform-identities/

 

Kind Regards,

Michelle

Hi

 

We use the Metacoda Plug-in in both our SAS VA and SAS Grid environments for Active Directory Synchronisation.

It works like a charm and provides reports on users added, deleted etc. The interactive user interface is easy to use and provides everything that you need to understand AD groups and SAS Roles.

 

It is a "must have" for any SAS environment that synchronises with Active Directory.

Wouter

Hi balraj



The Plug-in is provided by Metacoda - Michelle ( above ) is the contact person for Metacoda.

They can probably provide a trial version.



The plug-in installation drops the right files in the right places. It becomes available after installation by default.

Hi Wouter,

 

I'll get in touch with Michelle, just now I found that it is free for the registered users. Apart from MetaCode do we have any other alternatives similar to Metacode

 

My Regards

Hi balraj

Not that I am aware of. We are a Metacoda customer after looking around for a solution.

I would suggest you look at it and make a decision. You won't be sorry.

Hi @balraj,

 

If you register for a free 30 day Metacoda Security Plug-ins evaluation you can try the Identity Sync Plug-in. There is some detail relating to licensing on our website and we can discuss this further offline.

 

Kind Regards,

Michelle
