Use the Invited and Local Users page to manage your invited and local users. This page is displayed only if the following requirements are met:
The Invited and Local Users page contains two tabs that you can use to search for, view, edit, lock, unlock, and delete invited and local user accounts.
You can also manually send registration emails to your invited users. You may want to do this, for example, if the registration period that the email authorized ends and the user cannot use the URL to register. In this case, you can resend a registration email to the invited user. When the invited user registers and activates the account, the user becomes a local user.
Invited users can also be added directly through the LDAP directory that document security references, or when a user or administrator invites a new user when creating or editing a policy, therefore initiating a registration invitation email. Users can add new invited users to policies if you enable the Enable Invited User Registration option on the Invited User Registration page.
You can add one or more invited user accounts to document security at a time. To add an invited user account, you need the email address of the user. When you add a user, document security sends a registration email inviting the user to register.
Type the email addresses of the users you want to invite. Enter multiple addresses on a line, separated by a comma.
The message that you created when enabling invited user registration is sent to the users. (See Configuring invited user registration.)
You can view information about local users, including the name, email address, organization, registration status, and domain.
When you add an invited user, document security automatically sends the user a registration email request. You can also manually generate a registration email to send to an invited user who has not yet registered. You may want to do this, for example, to send a new invitation if an invited user's registration email expires.
You can reset passwords for activated invited users who registered with document security but forgot their password. When you reset a password, an email is generated that contains a new, temporary password for the user.
When you enabled the invited user registration process, you created an email message that will be sent to users prompting them to reset their passwords. (See Configuring invited user registration.)
You can disable local user accounts to temporarily restrict a user from logging in to document security. When you disable the account, the user cannot use policy-protected documents or create or apply policies.
You can enable a local user account that is currently disabled. You cannot enable an invited user account that is listed as registered. The registered status indicates that the invited user is registered but has not yet activated the account using the link in the activation email.
You can delete invited user accounts from document security. You may want to delete an account, for example, when a user changes their personal email account information.
If you delete a user account, only you or another administrator can reinstate the account by selecting the Add Invited User option on the Invited Users page. Users cannot add the deleted user account to a policy, and no invitation process can be initiated by that method.
Invited users who were deleted through the AEM forms User Management interface cannot be reinvited until they have been deleted again using the following procedure.
You can delete local user accounts from document security. You may want to delete accounts, for example, when users change their personal email account information.
You can find users more easily by sorting the user list by column heading. Triangle icons beside the column heading indicate which column is currently used to sort:
An upward-pointing triangle indicates ascending order.
A downward-pointing triangle indicates descending order.
In administration console, click Services > Document Security > Invited and Local Users.
To sort invited users, click the Invited Users tab and click the appropriate column heading.
To sort local users, click the Local Users tab and click the appropriate column heading.
