AD ExternalAuth create user

Hi. I got ExternalAuth working with Win2k3 AD. My next step is to
import tickets from our old system into the new system. I already wrote
a script that does this via the command line rt interface. The one
problem I’m having is that I need some users to already have a uid in RT
(ie. they’ve already logged in once and RT auth’d them with AD and
created a user account) so I can assign the imported ticket to them.

Finally, my question: :slight_smile:
Is there any way for me to import a few users into RT? I looked for a
script that would import users from AD into RT, but couldn’t find anything.

Thanks

I think this is what you are looking for http://search.cpan.org/dist/RT-Extension-LDAPImport/

Run that with cron to do a regular import.-----Original Message-----

I actually couldn’t get ldapimport to import any users for me although
it did auth properly.

In any case, I just realized I can simply create the user in the web ui
and as long as the username and email address match, it works fine.
