granted identity

noun

A granted identity is a type of security identity that is automatically given to certain authenticated users by a security identity provider (see Coveo Cloud V2 Management of Security Identities and Item Permissions).

A single security identity can have several granted identities, and a given granted identity can be associated with multiple security identities. A granted identity is conceptually similar to a group, except that most of the time, it is not possible for an external secured enterprise system to retrieve the complete list of users who would receive a certain granted identity.

All authenticated users could automatically receive the Everyone granted identity from a certain security identity provider.

Granted identities were formerly referred to as well known groups.
