I have successfully set up Jenkins with AD plugin a while ago and it works almost like a charm with Microsoft AD.
The only thing I am not happy with is users able to authenticate using either john.doe or email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s fine when user record already exists in Jenkins. Hoverer creates different looking user on users’ first login. So ‘People’ tab looks as a zoo.
Is it possible to configure the plugin to match against a specific attribute like sAMAccountName and create user records based on that attribute?
