Adding Users to an Active Directory Group

Commerce Server 2002

Commerce Server Business Desk provides the Group Manager module for managing user membership in Active Directory groups. Your system administrator must base your site on the SupplierActiveDirectory Solution Site for you to have a Group Manager module in Business Desk.

You must have access to the Profiles modules to make changes to site terms, profile definitions, and profiles. For information about Business Desk permissions, see About Business Desk Security.
