New user library sign in - On Premises R2020

Author-it Administrator

When a new user user logs in to an Author-it library for the first time, Author-it looks for the user's Active Directory name in the Author-it Library User list. If an entry for the user does not exist (based on the name assigned in the Active Directory attribute values) a new account is created:

  • The account uses the Active Directory name as the Author-it User name.
  • Author-it group permissions are assigned to the user based on the Active Directory Group/Author-it Group mappings you have assigned to the library.

    Important: The Author-it Group must be mapped to an Active Directory Group. If the Author-it Group has not been mapped, the account will not be created when the new user logs in.
