Chapter 11. Defining Contributor Roles > Assigning Users to Roles

Assigning Users to Roles

Contribute offers two different techniques for linking a specific user to a defined role. The method used depends on whether your site has the User Directory service of CPS enabled. If the User Directory service is not used, then a role is selected when the connection key is generated. Lesson 1 illustrated this technique when the connection key for your development site was created.

The other technique (described in this lesson) also employs connection keys, but with several important differences. When the User Directory service is available, roles are assigned to existing users in Contribute. The pool of potential users comes from the connections established in the CPS administrative console, to a file-based directory or directory server such as Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP). A connection key might be generated at the same time that the role is assigned.
