refusing to add that account to any of their groups), the saffron user can always log in

2. First click Add Users to add a new user. This opens the first of the Add Users pages. You
can apply the policy to an individual zone (more on zones to come) or to all zones (which
is the most common use). Once you’ve picked the zone(s), click Next . To follow my
example, leave it applied to all zones.
This takes you to the second Add Users page (Figure 10.56), where you can choose the
user(s) you want to add ( saffron in my example) and assign one or more of the following
permission policy levels to the user:
Full Control Access to all permissions
Full Read Can read everything but cannot edit/delete/add anything
Deny Write Cannot write anything
Deny All No access at all
WHAT’S WITH THE I:0#.W|?
You may notice that some of your usernames are displayed as i:0#.W|domainname\username. This
weird string appears to be appended by SharePoint whenever claims-based authentication is used,
presumably to identify that authentication method. So if you see “i:0#.W|” as a prefix to your domain
name, you can assume claims-based authentication is in use. I hope Microsoft will remove or hide
this code in a future update to SharePoint Foundation.
