In the scenario when SAML is configured for user authentication in Sites 9, the documentation suggest to use user provisioning through group mapping.

Is this the only way to go? Apart from using the PowerShell framework or UI extension workarounds, is there a more elegant way to configure Tridion to be able to select users from the domain in the UI? Maybe by configuring LDAP? Although I am not sure if LDAP can be used in combination with SAML.
