UCD - OpenIDC needs to support integration with AD authorization for Enterprise DevOps

We are in the process of proving out OpenIDC as our SSO solution for UCD 7.2.1.2 and finding the solution incomplete. We expect Authentication through OpenID to work like Active Directory (AD), without the user having to supply a password This does not appear to be true in the current instantiation. In the current implementation, there does not appear to be a hook to bind authorization to authentication. When a user logs in using OpenIDC, they have no privileges. This is not a useable solution for an enterprise implementation. As a SOX-critical enterprise DevOps tool, managing authorization is critical. The current AD method works well: 1. appTeam managers manages AD groups. Adding/deleting members from groups is a standard part of managing a team. Team membership is regularly audited. There are over 1,500 groups participating in UCD. 2. Groups are added to UCD roles in UCD Teams -- this is a one-time onboarding setup 3. UCD maintains the current user authorized groups by querying AD at login time and populating group membership. Authorization method is part of the authentication configuration. This is a critical feature for our Risk Team -- they want proof that we don't allow improper access to users that have left a role The ask is to include an authorization configuration as part of the authentication configuration
