Using the Active Directory to manage users

It is possible to use Active Directory accounts to work with ABBYY FlexiCapture. To enable the use of Active Directory accounts, you need to import them from the Active Directory and set up their roles and access rights.

To import users from the Active Directory, the FlexiCapture administrator should open the Administration and Monitoring Console and on the Settings → Users page, click the Import button. Either individual accounts or groups can be imported (select the Search groups option to find groups).

In the Active Directory path field, specify the address of the domain controller where ABBYY FlexiCapture is installed.

Note: By default, users and groups are imported and synced in one Active Directory domain. If a group being imported contains users from another subdomain, make sure to specify the address of the domain’s controller in the following format: GC://<address>.

Use the Name field in the Search and import settings section to find a particular user or group by their name.

Note: You can replace a portion of the name with an asterisk.

Users added in this manner can authenticate using the standard IIS authentication methods, specifying their Windows account names. Additionally:

  • When accessing FlexiCapture stations, users must select Windows authentication.
  • When accessing web stations, users must specify station addresses in the following format: http://<ApplicationServer>/FlexiCapture12/<Station>/WinAuth, where <ApplicationServer> is the name of the computer on which the Application Server is installed and <Station> is the web station that the user wants to access.
