Creating local users

You can create local users and assign them to one or more local groups to control their access permissions. Because local users must be assigned to local groups, you should create the groups before creating the users.

Before you begin


  1. Select Access Control > Users.

  3. Complete the following fields.
    • 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.
    • Unique name: A unique username, which is used when the user signs in.
    • Deny access: If selected, this user cannot sign in to the tenant account, 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.
    • Password: A password, which is used when the user signs in.
