    Hi,

    Windows AD users must be mapped from Active Directory. Users will be displayed in the CMC after updating the Windows AD plug-in. Can you describe how to you are trying add a user manually?

    There are no issues on that version so the error means we queried AD and it came back negative, you should get the same error for any user that is not a member of a group mapped into BI

    You can add domain users (not necessarily recommended in larger domains) and try again to verify the issue is not the user.

    Hello Manasa Reddy Regalla,

    If you read blog below it will give you an idea for AD and BI integration.
