Hello,

 

If you are using Windchill authentication, as Administrator, Edit Authenticator > ptc-identity-provider-authenticator and add group as below :

If you are using SSO, Edit ThingworxSSOAuthenticator and add group in UserDefaultGroups :

Hi,

 

I'm using the same way you mentioned above but when user's belong to different role are also added to the specific group which we added in the ptc- identity-provider.

 

Is there any way to overcome this?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

 

Not sure to understand. Can you clarify use case?

If you define group(s) in authenticator every new user will belong to these group(s).

 

Kind regards. 

Hi 

 

We have different roles like manufacturing, design and so on. what i need here is that designer should populate to designers role and manufacturing user need to populate to manufacturing respectively role but in above case all the users are populated to the groups which is added in the authenticator.

Hello,

 

How do you know that a user should be in Designer or Manufacturing group ? Is infomation coming from Windchill?

 

As far as I know you can map user depending of some specific attributes coming from user info but only with SSO Authenticator.

For instance you can get GROUP info from Active Directory and do a mapping condition in SSO Authenticator.

See section 3 from https://www.ptc.com/en/support/article/cs285504?posno=3&q=identity%20provider%20group%20mappings&sou...

 

Kind regards.
