Users, Login and Teams

Users and login

Located at DrEdition: "Settings" -> "Users"

DrEdition supports two kinds of users: regular, Google users and SAML 2.0-based single sign-on (i.e. Active Directory). Regular users sign in with email and password, while Google users sign in through Google Single Sign On. We recommend using Google users, as that means there's on less password for your users to remember, and you can take advantage of Google two-factor authentication.

For regular users, you set the name, email, password and team memberships when creating them. For Google users, you register the email and teams, and the user will be created the first time that user logs in.

If your organisation is using Google Apps for email, you can also register your domain as a Google Domain Whitelist, which will allow any user with that email domain to log in. These can also be configured with teams. It's up to you if you want new users to have full or limited access, depending on the teams you assign.

DrEdition let's you organise users into teams, and give teams different permissions. As most features are organised around products, you will typically have three levels of users: account admins, product admins and product contributors.

Product contributors are limited to creating and updating editions, while product admins can also manage product settings and delete editions. Only admins can create new products.

You can also grant specific scopes to a team, to give access to for example manage all products.

Editorial Groups

For smaller organisations, teams should cover your needs, but for more elaborate organisations, you can also benefit from editorial groups.

With an editorial group, designated admins for that group can create new products within the group and all group members will get access to the new product.

You can also define a product content schema, which allows you to attach extra metadata to products within that group.
