LDAP AD in NNMi 2018.11 or later - create a wizard or on screen interface to configure

Your team created a gui / web page to configure clustering
Could you do the same for Active Directory integration?

LDAP/AD is too difficult to configure in NNMi.
It took me 5 mins to fill in the gui boxes on OBM 2019.05 but support still cannot after 2 months figure out what is wrong with NNMi attempting to use active directory ldap.

Options:
A.) Rework the LDAP/AD module to be easier to work with

B.) Rework the LDAP/AD config files to match the same settings asked for in OBM Authentication Management

C.) Create a web gui like NNMi Cluster Wizard to configure, connect, and test connection to AD.

Oh, hey -- if there's going to be work done on the AD module, I have an open case about ID case-sensitivity as it relates LDAP/AD logins.  Case #SD02499323

While you're considering the work on this request -- I think it would be great if you could also add something to make the IDs not-case sensitive.  Did you know IDs appear to be case sensitive, no, not just the passwords, IDs [local and DSA-based] are case-sensitive.

Create a web GUI like the NA LDAP Setup Wizard to configure, connect, and test the connection to AD.
