Good day. I currently have SharePoint configured in a test environment and was wondering if there is a way to create user accounts that have local permissions within SharePoint and not add them to our domain?

You can create a local user account in your server and then add it to the sharepoint group for testing.

Go to My Computer--Manager-local users and groups

Go to users

Add new user.

SharePoint doesn't have a built-in user account management tool?

Sharepoint would pull the users details from active directory or locally but do not give outbox option to create users. You may want to use form based authentication, which could give you option to create users. It would create accounts and store it in DB. You cannot use those accounts anywhere

SharePoint relies on outside user directories, such as Active Directory.

I didn't realize that. I was under the impression it would have its own user account management as well as the option to use AD, etc. Thank you all for the clarification.
