You can connect BI Validator to an external authentication server, such as Microsoft Active Directory. This allows BI Validator to authenticate users using their credentials stored in the LDAP directory. You then assign groups to the users and control which users will have the permissions to the test plans.

Information Administrators are still required to create users manually and indicate that the user is available in the LDAP directory.
