Add domain users into a namespace

In the ECS Portal, you can add domain users into a namespace based on the AD or LDAP domain, groups, and attributes associated with the users. Domain users must be added (mapped) into a namespace in order to perform ECS object user operations.

Before you begin

  • This operation requires the System Administrator or Namespace Administrator role in ECS.

  • An authentication provider must exist in the ECS system that provides access to the domain that includes the users you want to add into the namespace.


  1. In the ECS Portal, select Manage > Namespace.
  2. On the Namespace Management page, beside the namespace, click Edit.
  3. On the Edit Namespace page, click Domain and type the name of the domain in the Domain field.
  4. In the Groups field, type the names of the groups that you want to use to add users into the namespace.
    The groups that you specify must exist in AD.
  5. In the Attribute and Values fields, type the name of the attribute and the values for the attribute.
    The specified attribute values for the users must match the attribute values specified in AD or LDAP.
    If you do not want to use attributes to add users into the namespace, click the Attribute button with the trash can icon to remove the attribute fields.
  6. Click Save.
