Better AD group syncing

Under Consideration

I would be nice if FileCloud could somehow automatically import groups. Having to manually create the group, and then separately populate the group, is very cumbersome. It would be nice if the system could do one of the following:

* automatically import/sync all groups of (for example) all users of the system.

* automatically import all members of a group after the group is created, if FC detects that the name of the group matches an existing AD group.


It would greatly save time when having to do group maintenance.

One other thing I just thought of. It would be nice if FileCloud could also automatically disable users who no longer match the sync criteria (For example, if the "Limit Login to AD Group" field was populated, any users that are no longer in that group should be disabled. Also, users who have been disabled in active directory should also be disabled in FC.

One further thing: If Active Directory group membership has been removed the user should automatically be removed in the FileCloud group as well during AD sync
