Directories in User Manager house groups of Users and Groups from directories such as "Active Directory" or "OpenLDAP". You can also create an unlimited number of internal directories or combine multiple Active Directories and OpenLDAP directories with the PBX Internal directories.


Directories can be sorted by dragging and dropping the columns. The highest ranked directory will take priority over the lower directories in terms of User Authentication or username lookups.


The default column let's your PBX know what you assume is the default directory of the system. This is used for legacy PBX applications that are unaware of the directory functionality. To set a new directory as the default simply hover over the cell for Default on the row of the directory you want to be the default and click inside the cell.
