Hi. I am relatively new to Cloudron and have been experimenting with it the past couple of weeks to see if it is a solution for my enterprise. After finding that the LDAP groups are not available in apps, especially Nextcloud, it’s pretty much a deal breaker. As no has responded with a specific use case, I will outline mine.
Currently users and groups are defined in active directory. Access control to files shares and specific folders is done via group membership. Essentially, only members of the team working on a specific project are allowed to access the files for the project.
One of the benefits of Cloudron is to link the platform to active directory and not have to setup individual apps access to active directory over and over again. However, without the propagation of the AD groups through LDAPs to Cloudron and finally to apps themselves, I would need to essentially manage access control within each individual app which will lead to errors and a maintenance nightmare.
I like the product thus far, but this current issue is giving me pause.
