h1. Scenario
Authenticate users through Active Directory and retrieve associated groups to determine user permission. We assume that:
# Domain of the Active Directory is
# This Active Directory can be accessed through address _ldap://
# Users and groups are managed under LDAP entry _cn=Users,dc=example,dc=com_.
# User _Administrator_ is used to search user and group information in this Active Directory.

h1. Resolution
# For each Active Directory group you want to assign QuickBuild permissions, create a group with the same name in QuickBuild, and set proper permissions.
# Login as Administrator, switch to menu _Authentication->Authenticators_, and add an authenticator of LDAP type like below:
# Your users should now be able to login to QuickBuild and access to QuickBuild functionalities will be controlled using the group information from Active Directory.
