ldap authentication: initial load

Hi to all

mojo 2385 asp4 sql2008 fulltrust

I've implemented a large intranet using ldap authenication.. and works great

My problem is that before running in production I have to assign Active Directory users to specifued Mojo groups, to ensure corret behaviour of protected pages

1) How can I do it ?? is there a way to mass-import users from AD to Mojo ?

2) is it possible to have in Mojo an automatic import/alignment of AD groups? would be great so I can assign authorization to "AD/Mojo"groups and maintain user to group only in AD !!

Thank you so much in advance

Re: ldap authentication: initial load

We use AD authentication and needed to assign our users to a specific security role. I enabled the LDAP option "Automatically Add LDAP users on first login", and created a User Registered Event Handler to assign that role when they log in for the first time. If you are a programmer or can hire one, you could do something similar and add some more sophisticated logic to assign the correct role based on Active Directory attributes.

After rereading your point 2, you'll probably want to also create a User Sign In Event Handler to look for the case where an AD user's group membership has changed, so you can automatically place the user in new mojoPortal roles, if necessary.
