You can do this by mapping roles as part of your authentication. You need to have the information about locations and departments in static groups in your LDAP server. If you have an AMEA group in your LDAP, you can map all users in that group to ROLE_AMEA. Then you would need to create a sample user that had ROLE_AMEA, log in as that user to initialize the role (there's a distinction made between internal and external roles, so you can't create it directly), then come back in as superuser and set up the right permissions for the role. If you are using the commercial edition, you can also use organizations for some of this. It is not good practice to create and maintain all your users in two locations. You want to centralize roles and permissions on your LDAP. This way, when users move departments, or you add new users, you only have to do it in one place.
