Sophos Connect - Add groups to "allowed users"
In the current implementation we are unable to select groups in the "Allowed users" field. Selecting groups would vastly improve time spent rolling Sophos Connect out for our pilot users.
I bet a lot of other customers also use LDAP against their domain to fetch users from there. Having to maintain pilot users two places makes this a headache.
Yes, please. Implementing this would also be a workaround for the issue of ALL currently connected Sophos Connect users getting booted when another user is added to "Allowed users" for Sophos Connect.
This feature is basically useless right now without this.

This seems like a simple thing to implement. Where are we at with this feature request?

just a small workaround: You could actually roll out the SC for all users (select all users) and block / limit the access by the firewall rules with AD Groups.
In this setup, each user could actually build up a connection, but only can access your facilities, if he is in the proper firewall group.
The Firewall rules supports a AD groups.
Agreed. Plus being able to query AD to see if the user in the group is enabled or disabled to allow them VPN.
I've read that it's up and coming but I'd like to see it soon. It really hinders the functionality in a multi-user case.
