2.1 Granting CrowdID access rights to a user
Granting CrowdID access rights to a user allows them to use CrowdID to access OpenID websites and perform all the actions described in the CrowdID User Guide.
Access to CrowdID is managed via Crowd. A user can only access CrowdID if they belong to a directory that is mapped to the CrowdID application within Crowd.
To grant CrowdID access rights to a particular user,
- Login to your Crowd server¹.
- View your CrowdID application² as described in Using the Application Browser in the Administration Guide.
- Click the 'Directories' tab to see a list of directories that are mapped to your CrowdID application. You will need to add the user to one of these directories.
- If your directory capabilities permit, add the user to the directory via Crowd as described in Adding a User in the Administration Guide. (Otherwise you may need to use your specific directory-management tool, instead of Crowd, to add the user to the directory.)
To grant CrowdID access rights to all the users in a particular directory,
To grant CrowdID access rights to a particular group of users within a directory,
