Hi Kanth,

You do not specify in your post which version of Qlik Sense you have set up, but as you refer to installing it I assume you are using Qlik Sense Enterprise for Windows.

This section of the help should give you the info you need to sync your users from Active Directory, which will also include groups in the user details.

HI @kanth,

Have a look at the Qlik article Qlik Sense: How to connect to AD using "Active Directory" UDC and YouTube video Setting up a user directory connection to upload your users - Qlik Sense

Hi Kanth,

If you are using the Active Directory user connector, groups are automatically synced as well as part of the user attributes.

First you set up a User Directory Connector of the type Active Directory. Next step is to sync, there is a, there is a sync button below the list of connectors or you can create a task . Here is the link on how to manage users in the official help.

 

https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense-admin/November2021/Subsystems/DeployAdministerQSE/Content/Sense_De...

 

This will bring in all users that you specify in the LDAP filer.

 

Go into the users page in the QMC, you should now have all users in the list. The user names have a small i next to them. If you click on that you can see the groups.

 

I hope this help

Hi Kanth,

Your LDAP filter looks to be wrong, if you are just trying to sync members of a single group you should follow the example here.

In particular, the filter in your screenshot starts with "user: " which makes the entire filter invalid, can you try removing that part and have the filter start with (&(objectCategory=person)
