Can you add web users manually ?


May 20, 2020
We have PMG processing mail for some domains for which we have no control over, hence there is no possibility for an LDAP connection to sync all users from the domain. I am trying to find a way to add a web user for such a domain, so they can login and check spam. Local users will not do in this case.
If you mean users for checking their own spam-quarantine only - then this is built-in - just enable the spam-report and select Ticket (or Ticket+LDAP) as Authentication mode for the quarantine.

If you mean actual Admin users - then keep in mind that this might be a bit too many privileges. Apart from that - you'd need to create them in PMG, but you can use the REST-API to automate this.
