Difference between having JazzGuest role and no role at all


Jeremy Hughes (2164837) | asked Jan 08 '09, 5:48 a.m.
Hi, it's possible to create a user and for that user to not be present
in any of the LDAP groups associated with the four Jazz roles. When a
user defined like this logs in, they get the default read access. Is
there any difference between this and being defined only in the
JazzGuest group?

Thanks,
Jeremy

The user needs to have a Jazz role for authenticatoin purposes. The only way to avoid it, is to deploy the Jazz server in the unsecure mode, which is both not trivial and not recommended.
