I’ve looked around for an answer here but haven’t found anything yet, so forgive me if this is already answered somewhere.
I know that enabling SSO disables the invite system (or is supposed to, anyway).
But I’d like to pre-load in all my directory’s users and create them in Discourse without requiring them all to first authenticate/sign in via SSO first. In other words, n% of my user base have Discourse accounts because they’ve already signed in. But 100-n% don’t, so other people can’t @ mention them, thereby encouraging them to head over to Discourse to join conversations.
Any way to do this as an admin?
Update: Pre-specifying users is pretty important for me to transition one of our large mailing lists over to Discourse. I’d like to set them up with email notifications for a specific category matching their mailing list preferences used previously, to try to minimize disruption.
