My client's system admin have created a public SharePoint site for their Sharepoint 2016 (on prem) How do I grant read access to external users and contribute rights to internal users?

For external users, you could enable anonymous access in SharePoint 2016 site.

For more detailed information, refer to the article below.

Enable Anonymous Access for SharePoint 2010/2013/2016. It also can work in SharePoint 2016.

For internal users, you could grant the internal users with contribution permission in the site permission.

Updated:

To sync users from AD to SharePoint, you should start a full user profile synchronization in the user profile service application.

For more detailed information, refer to the article below.

Start profile synchronization manually in SharePoint Server.

And then run the two timer jobs “User Profile service application proxy - User Profile to SharePoint full synchronization” and “User Profile service application proxy - User Profile to SharePoint quick synchronization”.

Go to Central Administration->Monitoring->Review job definitions-> Find “User Profile service application proxy - User Profile to SharePoint full synchronization” and “User Profile service application proxy - User Profile to SharePoint quick synchronization” and click “Run Now”.

  • Thank you Amy - but when I want to add the internal users in the site permission, it does not pick up the names from the Active Directory? Do I need to change a setting somewhere to sync that public site with the AD? – Heste May 7 '18 at 6:41

  • Hi Amy - I've followed your steps, but the AD users still does not show when I want to add them in the public site settings as users that can contribute. – Heste May 8 '18 at 8:09
