Create User Accounts

The most common way to add new user accounts to Hub is to import the accounts from a connected service. You can also create user accounts manually.

Create a User Account

To provide access to a single user, create a new user account in Hub.

To create a new user account manually:

  1. In the Access Management section of the Administration menu, select Users.
  2. Click the Create User button.
  3. In the sidebar, click the Create Users button.
  4. Enter values for the following settings:
    SettingDescription
    Display NameSet the full name of the new user.
    EmailEnter the email address of the new user. The email address must be valid.
    PasswordEnter the password for the new user account.
    ConfirmConfirm the password for the new user account.
    Force Changing PasswordSelect this option to force the user to change the password. The user is prompted to change the password upon the next login with these credentials.
  5. Click the Create button.
    • A user account with the specified settings is created.
    • The profile page for the new user opens. Here, you can configure the access rights for the user account.

After you create the account, you need to ensure that the user can access the projects and services that are managed by Hub.

  • Select the Groups tab and add the user to one or more groups. For more information, see Configure Group Memberships for a User.
  • Select the Access tab and grant the user one or more roles in a group or project. For more information, see Configure Access for a User.
  • If the user needs access to a service that limits the number of users who can use the application, grant a license to the user account. For more information, see Manage Service Licenses.

Invite New Users to Register

One way to create user accounts in Hub is to invite new users to register their own accounts.

When you invite users to register, you actually create an account and profile for the new users. The invited users are able to confirm the account and set their own passwords.

The fact that the account has been created lets you, as an administrator, configure access permissions before the invitation is sent.

To invite one or more users to register an account in Hub:

  1. In the Access Management section of the Administration menu, select Users.
  2. Click the Create User button.
  3. In the sidebar, click the Invite Users button.
  4. In the Emails input field, enter a list of space-separated email addresses of the users who you want to invite to register accounts in Hub.
  5. Click the Invite button.
    • An invitation is sent to the email address of each user to be invited. The invitation contains a link to the login page where the user can set a password and access Hub.
