Setting Up AD Sync

Updated 3 weeks ago by Jacob Flinders

Below is a short guide on how to set up AD sync so that your active directory is linked to your Boxphish tenancy list.

Before starting your AD Sync, it is advised that you create a separate group within your Active Directory.
Nested groups are not currently supported
  1. Go to your Boxphish portal: portal.boxphish.com 
  2. Click on 'Tenancy'.
  3. Click on the 'Users' tab at the top.
  4. Click on the 'Microsoft 365' icon as shown below:
  1. You should now be directed to a page informing you that you will receive an email:

  1. After a few minutes, you should receive an email telling you to click a link in order to import your users as shown below: 

  1. Tick the 'Create' box next to the group you have created for your tenancy user list and then Tick 'Auto Sync' as shown below:
  1. Finally, click 'Submit'. 

Your Active Directory will now be synced with your Boxphish tenancy and will reflect any new or removed users from your group(s).

Please note, after the initial import, any users added or removed from your selected AD group(s) will be added or removed from the portal at any time within a 24-hour period.

Department will pull from the Department field and location will be pulled through the Office field in AD.
AD Sync will not remove Manually added users.
If Autosync is not selected the M365 Office Key will expire within 90 days and the process will need to be repeated.
