User preferences in db for active directory users

i recently configured my icingaweb2 to use db backend instead of ini files. however, user preferences are not getting stored there and continue to save in ini files. logs don’t show anything useful. all of my users are from active directory and have no corresponding entries in the icingaweb_user table. could that be the reason that preferences aren’t stored there either? if so, is there a way to overcome this?

If i remember it correctly it will come with icingaweb2 2.8.

Currently there is no milestone assigned, since 2.8 will be the supporting release for IcingaDB.
