AD domain subgroups

EnvironmentProduct: Sitefinity
Version: 10.x, 11.x, 12.x
OS: All supported OS versions
Database: All supported Microsoft SQL Server versions
Question/Problem Description
After connecting to AD (active Directory) from Sitefinity there are problems with the role being applied to the users.

Is a configuration option to enable detection of user memberships in subgroups (something similar to this command for LDAP (AuthLDAPSubGroupDepth 1) which will browse the nested groups.) ?

Only AD roles are retrieved for AD users that are on the root, not for those that belong to subgroups.

Steps to Reproduce

Error Message
Defect/Enhancement Number
This is expected behavior. Currently there is no implementation to fetch the AD roles from members belonging to subgroups.
Until the fix is available, use the workaround below.
Move the users to the root level in the Active Directory.
