Hi Tommy, 

Typically, it can be done like below.

1. Export users to CSV with using repotools-jts -exportUsers.
See also http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSCP65_5.0.2/com.ibm.jazz.
install.doc/topics/r_repotools_exportusers.html
 
2. Create JazzGroups (JazzAdmins, JazzProjectAdmins, JazzDWAdmins, JazzUsers, JazzGuests) in MS AD.

3. Convert CSV file to LDIF which can be imported to MS AD.

4. Import LDIF file to MS AD.

5. Assign imported users to JazzGroups on MS AD.

6. Configure WAS to use MS AD as a user registry.

7. Run jts/setup to configure LDAP for JTS.

Hoping this works well for you.

In case the users are already in MS AD and you need to change the ID's of the existing users you might want to consider reading this post: https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2012/10/12/changing-the-jazz-user-id-using-the-rtc-plain-java-client-libraries/

Thank you. This time the uses aren't already in MS AD, but I appreciate your nice article.
