Are Users/Roles automatically synchronizied with your Live Forms tenant(s) ?

Yes - Manual user/role sync (via frevvo csv upload for example) is not required. The frevvo server automatically gets users & roles from LDAP.

No - if “auth only” mode selected - Manual or automated csv uploads required on a regular basis


Partial sync if discovery mode ( “auth only” off). User details and user’s roles are automatically discovered each time the user logs into the tenant. Thus the tenant can get out of sync with your IDP therefore manual or automated csv uploads on a regular basis are still recommended.

Yes - Manual user/role sync (via frevvo csv upload for example) is not required. The frevvo server automatically gets users & roles from Azure AD.

YesYes
Authentication Only Mode Choice

No - You must change your IDP (LDAP in this case) to have roles you need in your frevvo workflow if they do not already exist. All user information is maintained in LDAP.

YesYes
Authentication Only = YesNot Supported

SAML handles authentication only - roles/users managed & maintained via the tenant Users/Roles UI.

Changes made via the tenant Users/Roles UI do not get overridden when user logs in/out.

Con - (1) All user information (email address) must be managed by the frevvo tenant admin. This can get out of sync with your IDP.

You cannot pull custom attributes from your AD.

Pro - You can add roles for frevvo workflow without having to edit your IDP

Users and roles are defined in Azure AD.

 

Authentication Only = No

This is the only mode allowed in this SM and this property does not even exist to change it.

Groups needed for these user types in your IDP:

  • Designer users must be members of the frevvo.user and frevvo.Designer groups
  • Tenant Admins must be members of the frevvo.User and frevvo.TenantAdmin groups

Users are discovered immediately the first time the tenant connects to the IDP and are automatically and always kept in sync without any manual intervention.

Groups needed for these user types in your IDP:

  • Designer users must be members of the frevvo.User and frevvo.Designer groups
  • Tenant Admins must be members of the frevvo.User and frevvo.TenantAdmin groups

Users discovered when they log in.

Changes made via the the tenant Users/Roles UI are overwritten if user logs out then in again.

Users and roles are defined in Azure AD.
