Users are part of your organization who will be accessing your Kubernetes clusters and deploying workloads. In a typical scenario, different users belong to different teams and often work on an array of things. In this document, we show you show how you can add and manage users in Paralus.

There are two types of users currently supported by Paralus:

  • Local Users - these are standalone users are created from within Paralus dashboard
  • IdP Users - these are users from your organizations who use the application using your identity provider

In this document, we will cover the following items:

Local Users

  • Navigate to Home -> System -> Users

  • Click on New User

  • Enter details like first name, last name and a valid email id

    Adding a new local User

If you have configured a SMTP server, an activation email would have been sent to the specified email address with instructions on how to access the Org. But, since the user has not be configured with any roles and permissions, they will not be access anything useful.
