People

The People page can offer detailed information about a user and, for example, their account status, their device and their incident history. This page can be a good starting point to analyze issues in your environment, and initiate actions to remedy them.
You can access the page by clicking People in the left navigation pane.

Prerequisites to get started with the People page

  1. Install a connector server. For details, visit To set up a connector server.
  2. Install a connector to populate the static data on the People list and People details pages. For details, visit To set up a connector .
    This connector can be, for example, a Microsoft Active Directory connector or a Microsoft Azure Active Directory connector.
    In this context 'static' means that the data is updated only when the connector runs, either by its schedule or on demand.
    To enable actions such as Password Reset and edit Group Membership, also provide Action Credentials for the connector.

    You need a connector for every 'main' domain in your environment.
    Examples:

    • If your environment uses the domains example1.com and example2.com, you need connectors for each of these domains.
    • If your environment uses the domain example.com and its subdomains env1.example.com and env2.example.com, you need a connector only for the parent domain example.com.
  3. After the connector has run, confirm the imported data.
  4. Install the Ivanti Neurons Agent to provide real-time information for the Active Directory widget and the Group membership widget in the People details page. For details, visit Agent Management.
    The agent must be installed on at least one domain-joined device in every domain and subdomain.
    Examples:
    • If your environment uses the domains example1.com and example2.com, you must install a Neurons Agent on at least one domain-joined device in each of these domains.
    • If your environment uses the domain example.com and its subdomains env1.example.com and env2.example.com, you must install a Neurons Agent on a domain-joined device:
      • in the parent domain example.com, and
      • in each of the subdomains env1.example.com and env2.example.com.

    The Azure Active Directory widget is filled with real-time information, if you have configured a Microsoft Azure Active Directory connector or Azure AD (Cloud) credentials. This does not require installation of a Neurons Agent.
