Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, when an Active Directory (AD) user or group was added to an Identity Management (IdM) group using an external IdM group, IdM was unable to resolve the AD user or group before they logged into IdM. With this update, IdM retrieves AD users and groups during group lookups as expected. Additionally, AD members of IdM groups are now successfully resolved. Note that this update allows the slapi-nis Directory Server (DS) plug-in to populate AD group members of IdM groups in the compatibility tree, thus enabling functionality such as group-based sudo rules assignment on legacy clients.
