Currently, the only available admin providers are
- DefaultAdminProvider - relying on the value of the system property admin.authorizedJIDs
- CrowdAdminProvider - delegating to Atlassian Crowd
- JDBCAdminProvider - depending on an database table
It would be useful to have an admin provider that allows admin users to be identified by the group they are in. This would be particularly useful for deployments of Openfire that are backed by LDAP.
