  1. Hi,
    I have a vCAC 6.1, we are just using the Default Tenant for all of our users. Our Identity Store is configured to use Native Active Directory. When I create a business group, if I enter with AD group name, no results are returned. However is I enter a user account name the account is returned.

    Any idea as to how I can resolve this would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Although no results are listed in the drop down you should be able to type in the group name and add it to the role. This is something that is known in 6.1, it will still use the group.
