User management

User management in ThoughtFarmer

User account types in ThoughtFarmer:

  • Regular users are created, managed, and stored entirely in ThoughtFarmer.
  • Active Directory users are tied to an Active Directory user account and mapped to a ThoughtFarmer user profile.
  • External users have accounts in a third party application and signing into that application also logs them in to ThoughtFarmer.
Active Directory users can use any ThoughtFarmer-supported authentication method. Regular users must use Forms based authentication. External users must use Custom SAML authentication. See How to set up login providers for more information.
