QV v11.20: Using Active Directory groups in Authorized to View

We currently authorize users to view QV applications by individual name and/or AD group.  This is done in QMC > Documents > Source Documents > Distribute > Manually.  They are selected in the Distribute to Qlikview Server field.

Edit: The users are selected in QMC > Documents > User Documents > Authorization > Users Authorized to Access Document.

I haven't tested thoroughly, but my observations so far point toward AD groups either not being recognized or refreshed.  Individual users work fine.  Of course, I could be barking up the wrong tree.  I don't have access to see what feeds the Recipient list and its settings.

This thread seems to indicate that Access Point doesn't recognize AD groups.  Can anyone confirm it?

Re: QV v11.20: Using Active Directory groups in Authorized to View

I guess to make it simple, can Active Directory groups be used to give user's authorization to view QV applications?  Or does authorization have to be given to each individual?
