A user who is not a registered Siebel application user has no authenticated access to the Siebel Database. Depending on the Siebel application, unregistered users have various levels of access. Minimally, the user can access a login page. By default, or by your configuration, unregistered users may have access to some or all of the views of a particular Siebel application.
You typically grant registered users more access to data and features than you grant unregistered users. A user can be registered for some or for all of your Siebel Business Applications. You can grant different registered users different levels of access to the database and features.
If you implement an external authentication system, then adding a user to the Siebel Database, whether by self-registration or by an administrator, may or may not propagate the user's login data to the external authentication system. If the login credentials do not propagate to the authentication system, then you must create the login credentials separately in the authentication system.
For more information about authentication and propagation of user data, see Security Adapter Authentication.
For information about user authentication, see Security Adapter Authentication.
When you install your Siebel Business Applications, you are provided seed data that is related to user registration, user authentication, and user access to Siebel Business Applications. The seed data includes users, responsibilities, positions, an organization, and a database login. References to the seed data appear throughout this chapter.
For detailed information on seed data and for procedures for viewing and editing seed data, see Seed Data.
