Note that the concepts introduced here are easily applied to another LDAP ( such as OpenDJ ) or even other systems ( also likely to be covered in later blogs ). I have chosen Active Directory because it is a something I have commonly encountered throughout my career. Furthermore I am going to assume you have an Active Directory instance up and running. If not feel free to use OpenDJ or any other LDAP as the steps will be bro
Note: As many of you will be aware OpenIDM 4.5 has recently been released, for now I am going to continue using OpenIDM 4 for this blog but everything we talk about here is still applicable to 4.5, albeit with minor differences. I will likely move to OpenIDM 4.5 (or 5 even) when the beginners series is concluded.

- Configure an AD connector.
- Configure a mapping from AD accounts to an OpenIDM user object.
- Configure a mapping to AD accounts rom an OpenIDM user object.
- Configure a mapping from AD groups to an OpenIDM group object.
- Configure a mapping to AD groups from an OpenIDM group object.

Creating a Mapping
Finally, you can take a closer look at the results in OpenIDM, again navigate to our mapping, view the Associations tab and scroll down. You should see something similar to the following:
