Thank you for the article. It has been quite helpful. However, in the article, it basically shows us how to authenticate the user's credentials against AD, then read the user's group in AD to map to a role in Sitefinity - is this correct?
1. Is there a way not to map roles based on AD grouping, i.e. AD is only used as authentication source, and upon authentication, the users are assigned into Sitefinity roles, where the page and module permissions are already assigned. Please answer this urgently as it would take minimum a week for me to raise an AD change request ticket, and my launch date is next week.
2. In the example, there is a mapping of the permission of the grouping "Sitefinity team" in the web.config to "unrestricted" as shown in the code below:
| <add name="Sitefinity team" permission="Unrestricted"/>
I cannot find any other permission settings documented. What are the other permission settings that we can define? Is there any way to map it to the Roles we have set up in Sitefinity?
3. Instead of hard-coding the mapping, is there any way to dynamically do it please?
4. The changes required to be made in the article only describe changes to the web.config file. Is this all that is required to enable authentication to AD?
Thanks in advance.
