Question Content Server Logins

I work in an educational institution and was wondering if there was any way to set up the Content Server so that it can be tied into our Active Directory Server so that Users in can login using their own credentials and only access content for their particular grade?

At the moment it seems you have one login and that gives you access to all the content.

No, there's no way to do that. You can run multiple servers on different ports, each with a different restriction instead.

i also want this and some other stuff i suggested this:

i want to install one calibre instance on a dedicated computer so all my family can use it .
i realized that i need more than offered with calibre to let things run as i like.
so if you can help i would be grateful
thanks

1) I would like to see a user management in Calibre in content server with diffrent acess rights. A username and password is required to log on.
for example:some users can be given the right to view
others to download,or only download once etc..

2)age restriction to content
example: when a minor acesses the library the adult magazines and books wont show up or only a selection of books show up predefied for him.

3)automatic and scheduled download of periodic magazines from sources like torrent etc.

4)every user has a list of favorite books that is stored in his profile.so if he changes device he can get all his favorite books all at once without the need of downloading them one by one

5)the ability of predefined users to upload books to the library.
