Populate Friends list based on AD Groups

Is there a way to populate the clients “friends” list based on the groups they are in on the Active Directory Server? I’ve got the server authenticating via AD already and looking in the users tab it shows the groups the user is in so this seems like it should be possible.

Also is there an option I’m missing to make it so the Friend being added doesn’t have to confirm being added to the initial clients friends list? I’m about to roll out the server to up to 170 employee’s and it seems like a lot of traffic to have these messages bouncing around.

You just need to enable sharing on the groups you want to share in the openfire console and it will populate the rosters with those groups.
