I'm looking to add our LDAP-synced groups to be allowed to login to the Sophos Connect policy but it only shows individual users. Is this a bug?
Hi King Tomato,
It is expected behavior with the current implementation of Sophos Connect Client. It might change in the future release of Sophos Connect Client configuration on XG.

In reply to H_Patel:
Wow. Not sure what the design choice was here. Am I going to add 350 users manually? Nope.
In reply to King Tomato:
You could easily add all together and filter with the Firewall Groups in Firewall rules.
Downside: You need to consider this for every new employee (Depends on your company, how frequently this occur).
You can easily select all created users on XG to add them to the Sophos Connect config (Select all).
The firewall rule will then decide, which user has access to your resources, which not.
All user could connect to XG in theory, XG will block all users without granted permission.
I agree...that is the worse design decision EVER. Considering every single other VPN option allows selecting groups, yet the one that's easiest to setup and push out via AD/Powershell and such does not. Makes zero sense. Doh! PLEASE FIX ASAP!
