How syncing AD groups with Tiki?


I successfully connected my TikiWiki with the AD, so the AD's users can connect to Tiki.
Now, I want to know if it's possible (and how) to sync AD's groups with Tiki to add special rights to AD's groups.

Thank's in advance.

Look in the tab external groups in admin->login

I'm trying to get this to work on my Tiki too but i can't find the "External groups" in the admin-> login menu

My version is 6.4 running on windows 2003 server.

I'm on the way to upgrade to tik172. At the same time I would like to change my authenticaton from LDAP (with own coding) to AD with the external groups.

What does does this feature exactly work and how can I use it?

(In my installation, there is a memberOf-entry in the user for ever group he's in. This entry is in the form CN=groupname, OU=...,DC=...

I have different groups for users who can only read ond others who can update.)
