Sync AD users with AD group in Gallery

Now, gallery does not support AD group , need to setup user one by one.

If gallery support AD group synchronization, it is more convenient for gallery admin to manage large number of users.

By assigning AD users to AD group, it will reduce the maintenance task of gallery admin, since gallery admin don't need to grant rights in the gallery directly.

I agree with this notion.  Establishing permissions for each individual user is less desirable than managing permissions at a group level.

we have the same requirement in my environment as well.

We also have this requirement

Status changed to: Implemented

Thank you for contributing to the Alteryx Community!


This idea is being set to implemented, though due to technical aspects of Server, will have limitations. The base feature requested has been a part of the Alteryx Server since at least 10.0 and allows Servers using Windows Authentication to assign permissions by AD group instead of user. This also allows for the sharing of assets or content with AD group as well.


However, there are some limitations to this, such as not being able to share data connections to AD groups and being unable to assign AD groups to a studios or subscriptions. Though we do provide the ability to preset users' permissions based on AD group prior to them logging in to the Gallery. We do not currently have any functionality that allows the mass importing of users or permissions, like some users would like to use the AD group for.  Rather all permissions are provided upon first log in based on their assigned AD groups permissions.


If this kind of mass importing functionality or other considerations are what you'd like to see added to the product, please feel free to create a new idea for it! A new idea will help us see how much support there would be for that functionality.
