Could it be made possible to allow authentication into the CF Administrator by using Windows accounts/groups?

We have quite a few CF servers in the same Windows domain, and rather than having to go into the User Manager of each server and add 10 user accounts manually (and then force those users to go into each Administrator and change their initial password), it would be great if we could simply specify a Windows domain group who should have access to the CF Administrator, and then let Active Directory take care of group membership, passwords and authentication.

We already authenticate to our intranet applications using AD and <cfldap>, so I'm hoping the CF Admin login could be tied into AD in a similar way.



Hi Michael, Since a similar ER has been previously logged, will be closing this issue and be tracking this scenario as well, as part of the other bug( Thank you so much for raising this ER!

Hi, I wasn't able to see anything at (server not found), and searching for issue CF-4198198 returns 'no issue found'. Please could you double-check the issue ID number? Many thanks, Michael.
