Add an Active Directory group as members of a project area


Shirley Jhirad (412948) | asked May 07 '13, 3:10 a.m.
Hi all,

Is there any way to add an entire AD group as members of a project area?
I have a list of many AD users that I need to add as members of a project area.
They are all listed in one AD group and adding the whole group can save me a lot of time.

Thanks
Shirley

Shirly, as far as I can tell, the Jazz products do not know about AD groups, except for usage as mapping against repository groups.
It would be possible to write a tool using the Java API that does this. This would involve the Plain Java Client Libraries as described in this and the following posts: http://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2013/02/28/setting-up-rational-team-concert-for-api-development/ as well as using a Java API against LDAP. Note, this is certainly not trivial. You would look up the user ID in LDAP and find the Jazz user from it. Some information about the process area API can be found here: https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2012/12/09/analyzing-a-aroject-areas-members-and-roles-using-the-plain-java-client-libraries/ some about how to resolve users can be found here: https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2013/01/08/maintaing-user-photos-with-the-plain-java-client-libraries/ and here: https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2012/08/02/subscribing-to-a-work-item-using-the-java-api/
