Please take in mind that this does not work for Remote Directories e.g. From one Crowd to another Crowd
Once you have added a directory, you can import users and groups into it from an external system or from another directory defined in Crowd. To learn about importing from external systems, refer to Importing Users and Groups into a Directory. Below we tell you how to import from one Crowd directory to another.
You can copy users, groups and memberships:
- From an LDAP directory to a Delegated Authentication directory.
- From one internal Crowd directory to another internal Crowd directory.
Things to be aware of:
- The 'Password Encryption' method must be the same in both directories, otherwise you will not be able to copy the users across.
- The directory importer does not support nested groups when importing users and groups from LDAP into a delegated authentication directory. See CWD-1334.
- The 'source directory' is the directory you want to copy users and groups from. The 'destination directory' is where you want to copy them to. Both directories must be defined in Crowd before you start the import process.

To allow the users to log in to the integrated application(s) via Crowd:
- Map the directory to the application(s), if not already done. See Mapping a Directory to an Application.
- Give the imported groups access to the application(s). See Specifying which Groups can access an Application.
