Thanks for the response R Tyler Croy, I'm suddenly kicking myself for not 
finding that plugin when I looked for stuff like this!

I notice the plugin is currently at 0.1 alpha, do (or do other folks here) 
have any experience using it? It it fairly reliable doing the things it 
mentions in the docs (LDAP config etc)? I'm torn as we have additional 
requirements such as loading up trust stores etc and I'd rather not have 2 
separate mechanisms to configure different bits of Jenkins.
