How do LDAP users work within Yellowfin?

LDAP users are actually created outside of Yellowfin (e.g. in Active Directory), their user account is only created in the Yellowfin DB when they first log into Yellowfin. 

This means there is no actual way to 'create' LDAP users in Yellowfin, as these accounts are automatically created when the user first logs in.

ALL new YF users (including LDAP users) will initially be given the default role unless otherwise specified.
