Reporting: AD/eDir Backend Group "Departments"
Logging and Reporting - Web Security
Would love the ability to run reports based off of AD/eDir backend groups. Either by adding this functionality separately or by allowing the addition of backend groups to the ASG's built-in "Departments".
Unter Logging & Reporting - Web Security können Departemente für Auswertungen erfasst werden. Leider können dort nur Users und keine Gruppen konfiguriert werden.
Eine Dynamische Gruppe aus dem eDir oder AD wäre das sehr hilfreich.
Es wäre super, wenn diese Erweiterung in einer nächsten Version zu finden wäre.

It's 2015 and this feature still isn't available. Come on Sophos. If we can tell the filtering engine which groups to apply which filtering policies, then we should be able to log and report on that as well.
Is there any update on this? I think that this is an essential feature unless you're prepared to shell out a 3rd party reporting tool
Yes I also want this feature.
We have 5000+ users and currently you can create Departments but can only add individual user accounts or networks. We need to add an AD group so that it's dynamically updated when the group membership changes.

Fastvue is a company that specializes in web reporting and we've just launched a new reporting app exclusively for Sophos UTM.
It pulls Department information from Active Directory and automatically links this to the authenticated username logged by Sophos UTM.
You can then run reports on Department 'Equal to' Marketing for example and see top users, sites, categories, and launch further reports as required.
We'd really appreciate your thoughts on the beta:
I will lose a sale of a UTM 425 ( active passive cluster ) as a result of this feature not being available. If it can at least get onto the roadmap I might be able to salvage the deal.

This would make my life so much easier. I have to manually run reports for users each week.
We too would love this feature.

Can’t agree more with this. Organising 600+ employees to get any decent reporting is just a pain. Especially since we already have groups ready in AD that should be importable. Doesn’t seem like anything difficult to implement and would make our lives a lot easier.

The same idea was proposed in German last November, and it's one of those ideas that seems obvious. Who needs Reporting the most? - companies with thousands of employees. Who can't use the currrent tools available on the Astaro to manage a local copy of all their employees? - companies with thousands of employees.

I agree. There needs to be more flexibility. At present, in order to do departmental reporting, not only are AD-groups not allowed, Local users are not allowed! The only way to get deparments is to pre-fetch ALL of the employees and individually put them into Departments. When a business gets much larger than 20 people, this is not at all practical.
