Hi all,

Has anyone managed to figure out a way for users to log into CF Administrator using Windows accounts, rather than using local users created on each server with the User Manager? I guess my question is, is it possible to create custom authentication mechanisms for CF Administrator? We have quite a few servers in the same Windows domain, and I'm wondering if it's possible to grant access to the CF Administrators by using Windows group membership.

We already authenticate to our intranet applications using AD and <cfldap>, so I'm looking to see if we can link the CF Admin login to AD in a similar way.

A blue sky idea for a future version, maybe, but I'd be very interested to hear from anyone who has managed to build something to date.

Many thanks,
