AD Logons using Nested groups

Paul Wheeler Feb 11, 2015 12:41PM UTC


Currently we have users in an AD Group, who access BES and gain access, :
User --> BESGroup. BES then looks up this group in AD to check who it contains.

What we've been asked is if we can use nested groups :
User --> TeamGroup
TeamGroup --> BESGroup
So in AD terms, BesGroup contains TeamGroup, TeamGroup contains User

Does the BES authentication process work with the user being in a nested group?

Hi Paul,

The ability to do what you require is not currently available as part of the existing AD authentication support.
If you require this feature then please raise as a problem rather than a question and we will go from there. In terms of development effort we would be looking at 3 days including development, doc & testing.
This piece of work would be considered low priority.
