Editing local users

You can edit local users to change names, prevent them from being able to access the tenant, or assign them to different groups.

Before you begin


  1. Select Access Control > Users.

  2. Select the user you want to edit.
    If your system includes more than 20 items, you can specify how many rows are shown on each page at one time. You can then use your browser's find feature to search for a specific item in the currently displayed rows.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. Update the following fields as required:
    • Full name: The full name for this user, for example, the first name and last name of a person or the name of an application.
    • Deny access: If selected, this user cannot sign in to the tenant, even though the user might still belong to one or more groups.
      Note: You can use this check box to temporarily suspend a user's ability to sign in.
  5. In the Group Membership section, select one or more local groups.
    Permissions are cumulative. Users will have all permissions for all groups they belong to.
  6. Click Save
    Changes might take up to 15 minutes to take effect because of caching.
