Users in nested groups are not recognized
« on: April 19, 2021, 07:38:29 pm »
Details:
We are setting up a new environment and we want to follow best practices with regards to the Active Directory structure (AGDLP)
So that means we setup a resource group to allow access to a certain EA model (e.g. RGP-SparxEA-RW)
This groups contains a number of global groups (eg. BGP-FunctionalAnalist, BGP-Developer)
These global groups then contain the actual users (geert.bellekens@company.com)
When I link a group in EA to the resource group, EA doesn't recognize my geert.bellekens@company.com user and doesn't allow me access.


Steps to Reproduce:
- setup security to automatically create users based on the linked AD group
- create a resource group that contains a global group that contains a user
- try to open the model with that user
- notice that the user is denied access
