Our internal team and external client team both need access to RTC.  Can I setup RTC with our internal LDAP and create users outside of LDAP but inside RTC for client access?

I believe that if you set up RTC with LDAP, then authentication will be done using the LDAP. If you then create users that are not in your LDAP, they will not be able to log in since LDAP will not be able to authenticate them.

@balajik: does that sound about right?

 Michael, you can create any user you want in the repository. The issue is that the Application Server is doing the Authentication and passing the userid to Jazz. So we need the application server (Tomcat or WebSphere) to authenticate both group. For that I recommend Federated User Registries in WebSphere. This allow the authentication to work with 2 user registries (your LDAP for internal users and the 'other' registry for external users)
