[JIRA] Commented: (HUDSON-2096) Reasonable group management with Hudson's own user database

Hudson issues mailing list

    [ http://issues.hudson-ci.org/browse/HUDSON-2096?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=136027#action_136027 ]

henryju commented on HUDSON-2096:
---------------------------------

I can add that managing groups inside Hudson own db even with LDAP or ActiveDirectory authentication would be great. In my corporate environment I'm not allowed to create group so AD is usefull only for username/password check.

Having a way to create groups in Hudson UI and to assign groups to project security instead of assigning individual users would be a big time saver.
