Can only a locally-authenticated account make security changes?

Your post

     Hi, I'm new to FileMaker and researching server options.  I'm working with FM Server 13.

     I have external authentication working with one exception.  If I login through an external group with Full Access privileges using my domain account , I still can't  seem to save changes to the security settings.  I have full access to everything else, but if I try to (for instance) add a user, the confirmation dialog will not accept an externally-authenticated account for confirmation.  If I use a locally-authenticated account it takes the change.

     Is this intentional, or have I missed something in configuration?
