How users getting populated in SharePoint via Active Directory


  • Hi,

    We are facing an issue in SharePoint related to Active Directory.

    When we add a user into the SharePoint group, Title/Department of User displays blank in the User Profile (but in AD, the Title field shows correct data without any blank value). This is the case for specific users.

    After investigating the issue, we noticed few things below:

    - User Profile Service is not configured in the Central Admin.

    - There is no Sync job to synchronize the users from AD to SharePoint.

    - Claim based-NTLM Windows Authentication in configured at the Web Application level.

    Could you please let me know how the users getting populated in SharePoint via Active Directory?




    Knowledge is power.
