Captive portal users not in groups?

Not applicable

We are using the UserID agents on our servers for ID and groups.  Users that login via our AD domain on bound machines are correctly identified and we can apply policies based on group membership.  That all works very nicely.  We just put captive portal in place that uses Kerberos for authentication against AD.  Users are authenticated, but policies that are based on group membership are not applied. Is there a disconnect between the two sources that keeps the groups from applying to users that are authenticated via captive portal?

For Kerberos, you need to create a user-group in the Local Database on the Palo Alto.

What I ended up doing was restricting the authentication profile for captive portal to specific groups, and that seems to make sure they ended up with the group memberships.  It was a better solution than I expected because it also restricted the captive portal use to only accounts that were people.
