Selecting Active Directory Group for authentication

Instead of selecting each user from LDAP and give access. If we have option to select the  Active Directory Group(low_pre_access_group, high_pre_access_group) from LDAP and assign to access. It will be helpful and reduce task of adding every new user in SEAS/CCM.   User can request to Active Directory Group(low_pre_access_group, high_pre_access_group)

    We have active directory group in our LDAP, where we have a set of users for our our team. Whenever we have a new members, we don't need to add them in all servers/portals/tools. We just add the users in the AD group, he/she will get access and it will be the same for removing  access.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM. We truly value our relationship with you and appreciate your willingness to share details about your experience, your recommendations, and ideas.

    We will soon review this in the coming weeks and be able to get back with a response. Could you let us know if you meant adding a new user in the Control Centre Monitor or Configuration manager (Assuming it could be a typo) ?
