Is it possible to add non domain users? RRS feed

  • Question

  • A newbie question: Is it possible to add non domain/AD users to the CRM? In other words if i have some of my colleagues in another location where they dont have any domain setup - in this case does CRM allows to have something like Form Base Authentication - if i can map it to SharePoint or even simple Web Application?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    You can allow the user's access to CRM data through another application that you develop like a Web application.  You should do your development based on SDK standards and you will need to purchase the CRM external use license which I think is approximately $ 5 K.

  • Hi,

    Adding to Donna's comment, you can't add non-domain/AD users to CRM. You need to set them up as a user under your AD in order for them to access CRM. You may setup IFD for your CRM then your external users will have a login page to sign in to CRM.

    Like Donna indicated, you need the external connector to expose CRM data to your external application and external users.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi,

    look at this article "White Paper: Implementing an ADFS Solution for Microsoft Dynamics CRM by Using IAG"
    <snip>
    By default, an on-premise implementation of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 leverages Active Directory (Integrated Windows) Authentication to accommodate access by internal users. However, many businesses also require the ability to provide external users with access to the highly sensitive information that is stored in the CRM system and to accommodate this access without having to create Active Directory trusts. By using a combination of IAG and Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) to establish an authentication gateway, companies can provide access to CRM resources by any identity from any organization, from any computer, complete with strong authentication and full Single Sign On from the end user to the internal CRM system with a full audit trail (including username and source IP). This white paper is designed to : - Explain the business need and common business scenarios for using ADFS and IAG - Summarize the functionality and benefits associated with using ADFS - Summarize the functionality and benefits associated with using IAG - Explain the architecture associated with an ADFS solution for Microsoft Dynamics CRM that leverages IAG - Illustrate the solution architecture by providing and describing a sample deployment - Summarize the process for and provide high-level guidance on implementing an ADFS solution for Microsoft Dynamics CRM by using IAG
