This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.rstudio.com/blog/rstudio-connect-1-8-6-admin-digest


Security & Authentication LDAP / Active Directory Changes Group handling within RStudio Connect has significantly improved for LDAP / Active Directory within this release. Groups will now be synchronized via a background process on a scheduled interval. The group membership for a user is determined on login rather than at the time of content access, and permission checks will use synced data from the RStudio Connect database rather than making LDAP requests.
