Sitecore 9 makes it really easy to incorporate federated authentication into the admin panel. A large portion of the process simply involves a few configuration changes. Included as a part of these configurations are the group-to-role transformation mapping. The ease of these changes are nice, however adding a new role requires configuration changes, which means a deployment or (at the very least) an outage of the site. I recently incorporated federated authentication (via Okta) into a system, and was irked by this requirement. This subsequently drove me to add some logic to allow the group-to-role mappings to be configured within Sitecore.
