Connections 5 introduces us to a new model of access - the external user. Originally designed to have limited rights within your Connections environment, the security surrounding external user access is deliberately very restrictive. To achieve appropriate access for the external user, we must tell Connections how to identity an external user by flagging either an LDAP attribute or a new LDAP source. In this session we’ll discuss the options for external user configuration, how to manage registration and passwords as well as how everyone in your Connections world can work together.
