Hi Jimmy ,

From  other forum posts and my experiments what I found is  that the better way for identity managment is  to use the UserGroupCallback interface. Using this you can avoid implicit addition of  users/groups  in runtime.

org.jbpm.task.service.UserGroupCallback is  the interface provided for this purpose.

The interface has three methods :
* boolean existsUser(String userId) 

+Validates whether the input userid is valid for your application. If you are doing an evaluation , always  return a true, the user assigned to the task in the process definition would be automatically added to the+ 
+       ORGANIZATIONALENTITY table ( magic  :) )+

* boolean existsGroup(String groupId) 

+      Validates whether the input groupId  is valid for your application.Similar to above for evaluation we can return true and the above magic repeats.
* List<String> getGroupsForUser(String userId, List<String> groupIds, List<String> allExistingGroupIds) 

+      + 
+     Never tried this, but as in case of the other methods , the method signature says it all..+

Just shared my thoughts may be it would help you .
