  • What do you mean by valid enterprise ID and Password?

    If you mean that they have a valid account in Active Directory account, you could use the built-in Active directory group called "Domain users".  By default new AD accounts are automatically added to the "Domain Users" group. 

    You can grant SharePoint permissions (to a site, a list or items) to active directory groups by adding them to the SharePoint groups.

    Instead of using the Domain Users Group.  I would suggest that you create an active directory group called "All Sp forms users" and give the contribute permission to that new group.  Then all  you need to do is add the right users to the AD group.  This would prevent unwanted acces to users Active Directory accounts that should not see the forms (ex: consultants or other external accounts that you create in Active Directory)

  • If they are a member of a Windows domain (when you say Enterprise ID), then just add the group "Domain Users" to the Members group and everyone who has a Domain ID will have contribute rights.
