We need to know if is possible inventory AD Groups + Users and assign to an Application and start assigning licenses to Active Directory Groups to support the company's drive to use non-persistent VDI in lieu of standard workstations.

Hi,

This is currently no out of the box feature, but can be customized with some SQL, PowerShell and a Business Import.

You will need to:


1) Create a Business Adapter and connect to Active Directory using LDAP
2) Create the LDAP query to find all of the User Accounts assigned to a specific AD Group Name
3) Allocate that users to the appropriate Software License within FlexNet Manager

As part of an approach to handle this scenario, consider the following post which discusses a PowerShell script which can be used to extract group membership information from Active Directory into a CSV file: AD group member query business adapter. This type of data can then subsequently be processed and imported by a business adapter.

I implemented this to a customer for more than 10 license models, and is working fine.
