Authorization in the ACS

Is it possible to do Authorization only in the ACS for windows 3.1 using the Acive Directory user database without defining the users manually in the ACS?

Re: Authorization in the ACS

Yes you can, all you have to do is create a group in ACS, create a group in AD. Then you go into ACS/External User Databases/Databse Group Mappings and map the two groups together. Then all you have to do is add the user to the AD group. Here is a link to that section of the manual.

Re: Authorization in the ACS

Thank you, I will try, but I have an additional question, when you do Authentication and Authorization, everything works fine because the user is dinamically mapped (and created) to the ACS group, but when you do Authorization only, it seems as if the user is not dinamically mapped, so the Authorization fails, so is the user dinamically mapped at Authentication time? or could it be done at Authorization?

Thanks in advance
