How do I add users to Crowd Groups from a Delegated Authentication Directory?

What I'm trying to accomplish is have authentication managed by Active Directory and Authorization managed by crowd.

So when I user authenticates into Bamboo using their AD credentials the authorization piece is managed by crowd and depending on the crowd group assignments determines the level of permissions.

Is this possible? I'd like to start by defining the bamboo-admin group in the crowd internal directory and then have users added from the external delegated authentication directory.

Thanks in advance

I hope this helps, if possible please check the whole article to have a better idea about this integration with Bamboo.

Best Regards,
