Specify the following parameters when using this method.

Parameter Description


The location of the source data for the group to be imported.


The date and time at which the data was retrieved.

Return value

The newly created pending import group object.


Group profiles in a pending import group object needed to be mapped to Active Directory groups before they can be used. Groups in this state are normally imported from NIS domains or from text files and stored temporarily either in Active Directory or XML files until they are mapped to Active Directory accounts. For more information about importing and mapping groups, see the Administrator’s Guide for Linux and UNIX.
