Control User Roles through AD Groups

    We can currently add users to Portal via an Active Directory Group, but when added those users are just given the default Level 1 'Viewer' role. Once the user has logged in, an Administrator then has to log in and change the user's role to the desired role. This is pretty inefficient.


    It would be great to configure Portal to look at a set of Active Directory Groups for each built-in and custom role configured in Portal and automatically add users found in those Groups to the Portal with the corresponding Portal User Role.



    This way, we could not only manage access to our Portal through Active Directory, but we could also manage assigned User Roles through Active Directory as well.
