LDAP question in relation to "AutoCreate" option

To List,

I’m sure this is documented somewhere, but I can’t find it or it isn’t clear
to me (I have VERY FOGGY perception due to my ADHD and Auditory processing
disabilities), but I was wondering if LDAP filtering and authorization
occurs first so that if I set the “AutoCreate” option to automatically
create new users as “Unprivileged”, then I still wouldn’t be
getting
non-LDAP users or spam into RT.

Thanks in advance.

AutoCreate doesn’t affect that. If you want non-LDAP users rejected,
use the RT::Authen::ExternalAuth config option that prevents non
external users from being created.

Kevin,
