  6. Enter each Active Directory account that you want to add to the InsightCM role, or use the Browse LDAP by user for groups button to find which Windows accounts are recognized by the web application.
  7. Click OK to exit the Active Directory Role dialog, verify that the correct Active Directory account(s) appear in the Active Directory Roles field, and click OK.

If you assign an Active Directory user to multiple InsightCM roles, the user receives the permissions of all associated roles.

After assigning Windows Active Directory users to InsightCM roles, return to the LoginAuth.json file and set DisableBuiltinAccounts to true and remove the stored LDAPServiceAccountUserName and LDAPServiceAccountUserPassword.
