When using Active Directory as a user store, with default directory.xml mapping, IM Create Group task creates an AD group of <Security> type. How to create an AD group of <Distribution> type instead?


In Active Directory there is an attribute called groupType which defines the group type. Add a mapping to the attribute in directory.xml, and modify the Create Group task to set this attribute during group creation.
