Inviting a user that already has an IAM account

Abstract

Check out this article and learn how to invite a user that already has an IAM-account. We prepared this for your own convenience.

When updating the i4connected application, to a higher version, the system administrator needs to issue a new invitation, to all users that already have an IAM-account, but do not exist in the system's database.

If the user logs in with an external provider, the system will present a registration form. To enable/disable a registration form by OIDC login, please proceed as follows:

  1. Open the appsetting.json file, available under your i4connected api folder, on the machine running the i4connected installation.

  2. Locate the AutoProvisionUser setting.

    1. If the AutoProvisionUser setting is set to "true", users that do not exist in the system database, and log in with an external provider, will be presented with a registration form.

    2. If the AutoProvisionUser setting is set to "false", users that do not exist in the system database, and log in with an external provider, will be presented with an error.
