Hi,

I'm not sure if this should be in administration, but i was wondering if there will be an active directory implementation of the system login which allows users to be created automatically for permissions to be set by administrator groups in Orchard 1.7 e.g. in an Intranet environment.

I'm currently using this module and works fantastically in my setup [1.6] (has a couple of bugs but it still works).

I think that this would be great as a type of installation for Orchard on setup and broaden the scope of where orchard can be used/applied (currently using mine to be used as an intranet).

If this is in the wrong place then by all means please move the thread.

The goal of the core distribution is not to broaden the scope, but to provide the features that are going to be used by almost everyone. AD doesn't qualify for that, and is fine to remain as a module.

Ahh, no worries thought it would be a good suggestion.
