Do I need to synchronize AD users with Alfresoc for passthrough?

Hi guys

I do not completely understand. If I want to use a domain controller from AD to authenticate my users, do I need to import them also? The wiki of Alfresco is really confusing to me.

It's not required.

Probably this video will help you to understand the difference between identification and synchronisation when configuring LDAP:

Dear Angel

Thank you very much. If I understood your video correctly,  It is not needed to import users and groups into Alfresco if a AD/LDAP is used. I have to ask this question for which use case I would need to import the users? How does it look like if I would use kerberos sso?


Is it also possible to deactive the authentication for the passthrugh method for specific groups?


Thank you very much for the answer.
