Duplicating local users

You can duplicate a local user to create a new user more quickly.

Before you begin


  1. Select ACCESS MANAGEMENT > Users.
    The Users page appears and lists the root user and any other users that have been created.
  2. Select the user you want to duplicate.
  3. Select Duplicate user.
    Step 1 (Enter credentials) appears.
  4. Modify the following fields for the new user.
    • 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.
    • Username: The name this user will use to sign in. Usernames must be unique and cannot be changed.
    • Password: A password, which is used when the user signs in.
    • Confirm password: Type the same password you typed in the Password field.
    • Deny access: If you select Yes, this user cannot sign in to the tenant account, even though the user might still belong to one or more groups.

      As an example, you can use this feature to temporarily suspend a user's ability to sign in.

  5. Select Continue.
    Step 2 (Assign to groups) appears.
  6. Select one or more local groups.
    Users who do not belong to any groups will have no management permissions. Permissions are cumulative. Users will have all permissions for all groups they belong to.
  7. Select Create user.
