We are allowing users to automatically create their accounts. Is there a way to assign users to "default" groups? I would all users to land in a group where they will have access to a limited set of data. From their I will reassign them to their appropriate group. It would be nice if when they signed in they had access to something - not just an empty portal.
Yes and no.
Can you have users land in a portal group from creation that has access to resources that are not set to "everyone" and instead are protected to be viewed only by "group list"
Can you create a group with access to this content that auto-created users themselves can join to view the content?
I believe that this answer changes if your groups and content are secured by a domain controller.
Thanks for the reply. Ideally I would like the users to NOT have to join the group themselves. This is an extra step that I believe would be confusing for many beginner users and would lead to more questions than necessary. We have explored using groups secured by a domain controller however due to our network infrastructure, this isn't ideal either. I was hoping there was a way that auto-provisioned users could be grouped together and then be assigned by an administrator their appropriate security rights (by group).
This is something that'd be really helpful for future releases. I wonder if any other users would like this type of functionality too?
It is not possible to automatically add members to a group when their account is created via automatic account creation.
This is a great suggestion - you should add this to ArcGIS Ideas!
