> When using {{LdapGroupsMapping}} with Hadoop, nested groups are not supported. So for
example if user {{jdoe}} is part of group A which is a member of group B, the group mapping
currently returns only group A.
> Currently this facility is available with {{ShellBasedUnixGroupsMapping}} and SSSD (or
similar tools) but would be good to have this feature as part of {{LdapGroupsMapping}} directly.
