How do I create a user that uses active directory authentication using SmarterTrack API
Question asked by Emil Babayev - 10/31/2022 at 12:13 AM
Answered
We are looking for possibility to batch create users with Active Directory as authentication method
I am looking at API documentation and can't find any info on that, only standard password authentication 
Is there any solution to this?
We are using Build 8102

Hey Emil,

Thanks for reaching out with this question. This is certainly possible. 
Please see this API doc. 
As you can see there is a section about auth types. 

"securityFlags":
{
"authType": enum (see AuthenticationType),
"authenticatingWindowsDomain": text,
"isDisabled": boolean,
"isPrimarySystemAdmin": boolean,
"isDomainAdmin": boolean,
"isSystemAdmin": boolean
},

If you scroll to the bottom of the doc then you can see the enum values. 

Please let me know if this helps. 

Kind Regards,

Hey Emil,

Thanks for the follow-up and for letting me know. In SmarterTrack you cannot create a user using the API and set it to use the active directory at the same time. After creating the user you can use the SetUsersProperties call. Then you can set it to use your AD.
This should allow you to set the Authentication type for the user. 
I also edited your post title and tags so if other users have the same question it should be easier for them to find this. 
Please let me know if this helps.
