Improvement to “Users” application AD integration

Not right now

It would be nice if we could manually create/map new Active Directory integrated users in the built-in “Users” application. Currently we have to ask a new user to first login to an application, so that an AD account mapping is automatically created in the Users app. At that point we can then go ahead and assign that account to the appropriate access roles. Another option would be to have a way to automatically import all Active Directory users in to the Users app, before they even try to login to any applications. Ideally we just want to be able to setup new user permissions without first asking them to login to an application.

You can do this using the Active Directory Import component :)

Not right now

Hi Sal,

Sorry for the late reply, but we are not planning on delivering this in the near future.

The investment to do this properly is too big for the return and for the upcoming new features that we have in mind. Because of this, I’m marking this idea as “not right now”.

Nonetheless, thank you very much for your idea and keep it coming.

If you believe we missed some context that would change our perception about it, please give us more details about why you would need this and for what is the use case.
