Creating new users

Learn how to create a new user, and define unique identity and display name for the user.

  1. Click Administration from the left navigation in the Cloudera Edge Management UI.
    The Administration page appears.
  2. Click New User in the Users/Groups tab to create a new user.
    The New User dialog appears.

  3. Enter the unique identity of the user.

    The identity should be the unique identifier for the user provided by the identity provider, typically an email address. When using mutual TLS authentication, the identity should be the DN of the client certificate.

  4. Enter the display name of the user.

    The display name can be set to anything and represents the user in other places where the user name appears in the application. If you create a new user before the initial login, you can prevent the authorization error described above.
