You cannot change the mappings to AD or create new mappings in SharePoint Online. SharePoint Online follows the same default set of mapped AD attributes that on-prem SharePoint uses: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/Hh147510.aspx Azure AD Connect tool has improved a lot and now lets you sync custom AD attributes with Azure AD (it used to only ...

The below code access current user's department and manager from AD: SPSite _site = SPContext.Current.Site; ServerContext serverContext = ServerContext.GetContext(_site); UserProfileManager myUserProfile = new UserProfileManager(serverContext); UserProfile currentUserProfile = myUserProfile .GetUserProfile(System.Web.HttpContext.Current.User....

Active Directory Import is similar to the Profile import mechanism we had back in SharePoint Server 2007. It's an awful lot easier and quicker to configure than "SharePoint Profile Synchronisation", AKA "User Profile Synchronisation Service" (in services on server) AKA ForeFront Identity Manager (FIM) for SharePoint Server 2010. Enabling AD ...

Expanding on what others have written above, in SharePoint 2010 and 2013 it depends on the type of authentication you've setup your Web Application with. For classic mode you only have windows authentication so NT AUTHORITY\authenticated users will grant access to anyone that can authenticate with a valid windows credential. For claims mode you'll have at ...

Yes, absolutely. In 2010+, it's the group NT AUTHORITY\authenticated users Before that, it was "All Authenticated Users"

Late answer but, The User Profile is not responsible in this case. SharePoint recognizes AD security groups and attaching permissions to these groups will cause the permissions to be granted to the User. Unfortunately, due to SharePoint caching the user's memberships on login, changes made to a security group are identified only after the cache has expired,...

On your site, navigate to Site Settings > Site Permissions In the ribbon, find and click "Check Permissions". The return will show how the user have access to your site.

It is not recommended that this be done for production deployments, primarily because of security concerns. If somebody were to compromise some of the admin accounts for SharePoint they could conceivably also take control of your domain and do a lot of harm. For non-production environments and domains, this is fine and is frequently done (myself included)...

Have you waited 24 hours since the user last logged on or was added to the AD-group? The "problem" here is possible the life-time of the users Claims token, which by default is set to 24 hours. This means that once a user has gotten a claim, SharePoint will not request a new one until the current on expires. And, if you add a new user to an AD-group, and ...

You can use below snippet Get-SPUser -Web http://server/sites/yoursite | Where { $_.IsDomainGroup } AD group is treated as a special user. So this can be find using the filter IsDomainGroup Update $SPWebApp = Get-SPWebApplication https://*******.com/ foreach ($SPSite in $SPWebApp.Sites) { write-host -foregroundcolor green "Working on Site Collection:...

I ended up contacting Microsoft and was able to get this resolved. We made a few changes so I'm not 100% sure which step fixed it but I have an idea. For starters, it's worth mentioning we used to run 2010 and we upgraded to 2013. This was the error in the event log (6801): "Exception while trying to migrate account 'CTO\JohnDoe' to 'CONTOSO\JohnDoe'. ---> ...

In Central Admin, Web application management, highlight the web application you'd like to restrict for a group. Select User Policy from the ribbon and type the group name and select "Deny All". Click finish and test. As a test I added "All Users (windows)" to the denial policy, and my farm account, which is site collection admin also got an denial exception....

If your AD group is a security group and you are using SharePoint 2013, the way that AD Groups work are a little different. Each time a user logs into to SharePoint, they receive a token that is their identity for the AD groups they are involved with. There is a property of the Security Token Service called Windows Token Lifetime which is the expiration of ...

NO! Your SharePoint Farm Account does NOT need local admin privileges. So don't give it them! But when you configure user profile service application, you need to have local admin permission on your SPFarm account. But this is only temporary. When the first user profile sync have successfully run, you could (and should) remove local admin permission. If you ...

You can edit the User Profile Service Synchronization Connection to Active Directory. Central Admin --> Manage Service Applications --> User Profile Service --> Configure Synchronization Connections --> Select Connection --> Edit Then make sure all the required OUs are selected. Thereafter do a full synchronization for the user profile ...

You have to include the AD Groups in the user profile sync connection. If your AD Groups are not sync'd with the UPS, then it won't be possible. Make sure the UPS Sync connection includes the containers that the AD Groups are in.

It might be worth a shot to try adding ACS as an App in Azure AD, configure it for Single Sign-On and then using the WS-Federation end point for the app to add the Identity Provider. The first part of this post has a more detailed walkthrough: http://blog.helloitsliam.com/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?List=e10cb685-6b5c-4b6c-aaf4-e1d122d57174&ID=120

This is a little odd, but I'll try to answer the way I interpret your question. I'm guessing you want to change Active Directory user properties using SharePoint. In order to do this, you should have a User Profile Service up and running. The user properties you want to be able to change should have the synchronization direction set to Export. This means ...

Either you rename the AD group at AD or Migrate the ad groups from the different domains, names of the AD groups in SharePoint won't change. Interestingly, they will continue to work as they always have since SharePoint is really using the Security Identifier and not the name of the group. Now you have to two options Delete and recreate the groups. Run ...

If you only have one Site Collection you want to share, then in the Visitor group (with read permission only) add the user Everyone which is equivalent to NT Authoruty\Authenticated Users.

The cons is obviously that you won't be able to add users to a group in SharePoint, and you have to manage AD-groups instead. If you already have 10'000 SharePoint groups in your environment, you may have to rethink how granular you're setting permissions. But it's true that above 10'000 groups per site collection there are performance issues: Above 10,000 ...

To migrate from SharePoint 2007 to 2013 without using third party tools, you'll need to go via an intermediate SharePoint 2010 farm. You should be able to build one on a trial license however for the purposes of the work you're trying to perform. You'll want to perform a trial run of the migration to ensure that you have all of the required steps in place ...

Nested AD Groups are not recommended with SharePoint and can lead to the results you're seeing. Unnest the groups [with SharePoint].
