ACE v11 needs to support combined LDAP and local userids

Under IIB v10, you could have both IDs being looked up by LDAP and also locally defined userids/passwords. I am told this functionality is not possible under the current (fp7) release of ACE. This needs to be a viable option

    RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this RFE and apologies it has been in submitted status for so long. We agree that the product would benefit from users being able to mix and match at the same time between userids which are authorised locally and those authorised remotely via LDAP. Status of the RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
