To log in to Team Server you need both a valid user connection and a valid user account.

User connections determine the user sessions that Team Server can host, and the type of user experience of each one of those sessions. You can purchase licenses for different number of user connections (Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze Edition), and register these licenses in Team Server to enable your user connections.

To log in to Team Server, you must use the credentials of a Repository user account or, if you configure Team Server to support LDAP, the credentials of an LDAP user account. Now you can also create users within Team Server.

When you first log in to Team Server, the authentication process assigns you a user experience based on the available user connections and the access control permissions group defined by default. Depending on your user experience, Team Server provides a different user interface with access to a different set of features.

Once you are logged in, your user account, roles, and access control permissions determine what content of Team Server you can access and which actions you can perform. Some of those restrictions come from Repository, other restrictions are specific to Team Server and super users can configure them in Team Server.

When you create resources in Team Server (glossaries, terms, data sources, etc), you become their author. Only authors, super users and stewards can edit those resources and add or remove stewards from them. This does not apply to Reader licenses as the read-only license cannot be assigned as Steward. Nor create, modify, or delete Team Server objects. To change an Author licensed user to a Reader, they can not be a current Steward of any resources.
