If you've just deployed Education Edition on your server, the first thing that you need to do is to create accounts for all your company employees. But if it numbers more than 50 persons, the process of creating new portal users will take a lot of time. Since now you don't need to worry about it, because Control Panel offers you the LDAP Support option which allows to import the necessary users and groups from an LDAP Server (e.g. OpenLDAP Server or Microsoft Active Directory) to your portal, literally, in several minutes. The newly created users, in turn, don't need to memorize new passwords and logins because they will sign in to portal using their credentials stored in your LDAP Server.
To access Control Panel, sign in to your portal and click the 'Control Panel' link on the Start Page. Alternatively, you can go to the portal 'Settings' and click the 'Control Panel' link on the left-side panel.
