add LDAP/NTLM authentication so that Windows domain users can log in as themselves
That's it, really - configure read-only/read-write access via Active Directory group memberships or user lists built into SQL Monitor, and allow individual users to log in using their own AD credentials.
Instead of system accounts, it would be very practical to have integration with AD.
SQL Monitor 5.0 lets you log in with your AD credentails. Admins can configure individuals or AD groups to have access to SQL Monitor, and have granular access control over which servers users can see.
Looks like this is on its way: http://www.red-gate.com/products/dba/sql-monitor/entrypage/sql-monitor-beta

So, 3 years in and this is not supported. Products that cost way less than yours do this! Please add this.
I concur with everyone else here, please add AD authentication!!!

How hasn't this been implemented yet, it is amazing that this was even overlooked in the first instance but to have not even been introduced as of version 3.5 is just crazy. I mean to not even allow for custom logins and force you to use 1 of 3 pre-defined accounts based on different permission levels is just amazing. Please introduce this feature, it is a long time coming.
It's absolutely unthinkable you don't have support for this yet. If I'd known this prior to purchasing I wouldn't have gone ahead.
A definite must have.

It's really hard to believe this feature has not already been added! Yet another set of passwords to manage. OMG.

You can use IIS as the web server to manage who can and cannot log in presently. You'd still hit the built-in SQL Monitor authentication screen though.

please add this. It would be very useful.
User management is something we are considering and we've added your comments to our tracking system for this feature.
Thanks for taking the time to share your idea.
