Assigning a Location Key

Before you begin, it is important to assign a Location Key to each location that will be syncing users via Active Directory. To assign a Location Key…

 Hover over the Settings  icon, and click on Locations 

 Searchor Select  the location you wish to modify

 Click the Edit button

 Supply an Active Directory Key for the selected location. The Active Directory Key tells BreezN where to pull users from when considering Active Directory

 Click Save to create the location in the Active Directory

Configuring Active Directory and BreezN

It is recommended to perform these settings from the Active Directory server.

 Click on Settings and then click Integrations

 Click the Configure button that appears next to Active Directory

Connect to your Active Directory by providing the connection information such as your URL Service Account Service Account Password  and Search Base DN 

 Click Save to establish your connection. You may also click Cancel to  abort the process

 Click the Test Connection button to confirm that all settings have been properly entered. If the connection is successful, continue to the next step

 Click the option to Download a security groups sample file for an example file of security groups, exported as a .csv. This file provides a template of User Authorities within a respective location, as well as the respective Location Key. If you recall, the Location Key was provided in Step  of the previous chapter. This file can be modified, and uploaded to your Active Directory.

 Alternatively, you may elect to automate the process completely (recommended) by clicking the Download powershell Script. When doing so, settings will be automatically ported over from BreezN to your Active Directory.

In order to run the script you must be a domain admin and have powershell 3.0 or above with Active Directory module installed

 From the Active Directory Server, locate the Powershell ISE application, and open the application as an administrator

 Open the powershell script that you downloaded in Step . Note that you should see the Location Key of all of the locations configured in Step  of the previous chapter. In the example below, notice how ScienceCen, the Active Directory Key is displayed in the powershell script

 Run the script to load the location into the Active Directory

 Right click on an existing user and select Properties

 Select the Member Of tab, followed by Add  to add the user to a BreezN location and authority

 Supply the name of the Group, or Groups you wish to assign the user. If you do not know the name of the group, click Advanced…  to perform a search

When searching for Group names, BreezN location & roles will be of the format BREEZN_LocationKey_UserRole. 

For example, if you would like to assign this user the Security Officer role, at the Science Center, the group name would be:
