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,

  1. Login to your Crowd server¹.
  2. View your CrowdID application² as described in Using the Application Browser in the Crowd Administration Guide.
  3. 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.
  4. If your directory capabilities permit, add the user to the directory via Crowd as described in Adding a User in the Crowd 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,

  1. Login to your Crowd server¹.
  2. Map the directory to your CrowdID application² as described in Mapping a Directory to an Application in the Crowd Administration Guide.

To grant CrowdID access rights to a particular group of users within a directory,

  1. Login to your Crowd server¹.
  2. Map the group to your CrowdID application² as described in Specifying which Groups can access an Application in the Crowd Administration Guide.


¹ To find your Crowd server's URL, see 1.1.2 Locating the Crowd Server that CrowdID is using.
² To identify the name by which your CrowdID application is known within Crowd, see 1.1.1 Determining the name of the CrowdID application.
