Add User Accounts

There are two ways to add AuthPoint user accounts:

When you add users manually you can only create one user at a time and the end-user defines their own AuthPoint password.

When you sync users from Active Directory or an LDAP database, you can sync any number of users and they are all added to AuthPoint at one time. Users synced from Active Directory or an LDAP database use the password defined for their user account as their AuthPoint password.

You can manage any user account in the AuthPoint management UI.

Each user must be added to a group. Because of this, you must add at least one group before you can add users to AuthPoint. For more information, see Add a Group.

Sync Users from Active Directory or LDAP

To sync users from Active Directory or an LDAP database, you must add an external identity in the AuthPoint management UI. External identities connect to user databases to get user account information and validate passwords.

When you sync users from Active Directory or an LDAP database, you can sync any number of users and they are all added to AuthPoint at one time.

To learn how to sync users, see Sync Users from Active Directory or LDAP.

Add Users Manually

You can add users manually on the Users page in the AuthPoint management UI. Because you can only create one user at a time, you most commonly add users manually when you want to create test users or to add only a small number of users.

Unlike users synced from Active Directory or an LDAP database, users that are manually created in AuthPoint define and manage their own AuthPoint password. When you manually add a user account, the end user is sent an email that prompts them to set their password.

To learn how to manually add AuthPoint user accounts, see Add Users Manually.
