Add users to OneID


Add users to OneID

This article describes how to add users, and activate new users with activation emails in OneID. The adding operation applies only to organization admins.

As an organization admin, you can add both types of users, organization admin and standard user, to OneID. When user accounts are created in OneID, those users can activate their user accounts with activation emails by themselves.

For more information about user types and capabilities in OneID, see OneID users.

To add a user in OneID, take the following steps:

  1. Navigate to Admin Console > Users.
  2. Click Add New User. The New User page opens.
  3. On the New User page, enter the required information in the Basic Information section. Pay attention to the following fields:
    • User Type: Use this field to specify whether the user is an organization admin or a standard user.
    • Login Name: Enter the user name in OneID.
    • Federated ID: Enter the single sign-on (SSO) federated ID of the user. The value must be in an email format, typically the user email of an identity provider (IdP) user. If the SSO SAML Enabled toggle is switched to the on position, this field is required.
