I have some instructions for setting up LDAP authentication by tweaking your
WAR file and making some setting changes to Tomcat's `server.xml` file if you
want them.

I also have instructions for setting up Apache + mod_auth_cas in front of
Tomcat so you can do CAS authentication, but that would require that you have
a CAS server already set up.

Subject: [grouper-users] web UI authentication

I'm setting up a grouper server for the first time. I've been able to
configure grouper loader to pull in all of our active directory users
as LDAP entries. I've been able to use that data to search & populate

What I'm struggling with is how to authenticate the web UI for group
management. If I make manual accounts in Tomcat, I can log in, but
obviously that's not the desired method. Can I point the UI to ldap/AD
to authenticate through tomcat? I've been scouring the documentation
but I keep finding instructions for the loader, not the web ui

I'd appreciate any help pointing me in the right direction.
