The Users methods can be used to create new users, retrieve user page subscriptions, authenticate users and more. In MindTouch, users are separated into three categories:
- Anonymous - Not authenticated
- Community Members - Authenticated user without a license. Community members can read, favorite, comment and rate but cannot edit pages.
- Pro-Members (aka seated) - Authenticated user with a license. Pro-Members can be assigned a role of Viewer, Author, Editor or Admin. Each role has different capabilities ranging from editing pages to accessing the control panel.
