Attention: External Users have only been introduced with Connections 5.
By default, no Connections user is allowed to interact with external users (share files with external users, create a community for external users). Internal users need to be mapped to a role EMPLOYEE_EXTENDED which allows them to perform these actions.
Problem 1: Map one or more internal users to the EMPLOYEE_EXTENDED role
Problem 2: Check which users are assigned to the EMPLOYEE_EXTENDED role
