Subject AW: tree support in user-mapping.xml
Date Sun, 29 Apr 2018 19:51:22 GMT
Hi Nick,

I totally disagree. The delta is not just time, but the need of a full blown database that
I need to operate with plenty of cpu, memory, and disk usage.

Best Regards, Joachim

I do have my extension for Hyper-V, that does authentication and authorizations for my Hyper-V

No, the basic file authentication (user-mapping.xml) extension does not support any organization
to the connections.  The JDBC module is actually the only module that does - all of the other
modules that support connections (LDAP, upcoming QuickConnect, and Basic File Authentication)
simply put the connections in a single, flat root group with no ability to organize them.
 If you need this functionality, you need to use the JDBC module - it's worth the very slight
overhead and additional 10 minutes of work to get it set up.
