    Will the active directory integration work if I create custom roles using something like capabilities manager or role scooper? I want to have a group out of AD tied to a custom role like teachers then using role scoopoer i want to post content to just teachers.

    Hmmm... I think this will work. The only thing ADI does is to set the role of the user.

    ADI can only set normal user roles (like administrator, author etc) and not extra roles

    That's not true. If you use a plugin like "Role Scoper" or "Capability Manager" you can create your own roles and you can then use them with ADI. I have tested this right now with the "Capability Manager". It works.

    But don't forget to use the role names in lower case. If you create a role called "Special" with the Capability Manager you must use it like this "MySpecialADGroup=special" and NOT "MySpecialADGroup=Special". "Special" is the display name of the role and "special" is the name of the role.
