AD/Database User Source

This AD/Database Hybrid User Source is not manageable from within Ignition. Users/passwords must be administered through Active Directory, and roles, contact info, and so on, must be administered directly through the database. The way AD/Database Hybrid works, is it has all the same information requirements as the other authentication profiles, but it also has a number of Database properties. You need to specify a database (i.e., MySQL) to store information, and setup queries that you want to use. You must also specify the host that is acting as your primary domain controller, and a secondary domain controller in case the primary is unavailable. You'll also need to specify the name of the domain and credentials for the Gateway itself to use for authentication when it queries the list of roles.
