Active Directory keeps its users in folders, like files, which it calls Organisational Units (OUs). Users in Active Directory can also be members of Active Directory Groups. Emerge detects whether a username is an SLT or a teacher by being told what OU an SLT or teacher user is in, and/or which group. If a user logs in from the Emerge app and they meet the rules for SLT then they get that permission; if not then we test to see if they meet the teacher rules; and if not then they get refused login because we don’t know what type of user they are.
