Chapter 42. user.external


If you are using IPA integration to allow authentication of users from an external IPA server (rare) the users will still need to be created in the Satellite database. Methods in this namespace allow you to configure some specifics of how this happens, like what organization they are created in or what roles they will have. These options can also be set in the web admin interface.
