Most organizations import and sync users to OneLogin from third-party user directories like Active Directory (AD), LDAP, Workday, or Google Apps. But you can also add users directly to OneLogin and use OneLogin as your primary user directory. Even if you use a third-party directory like AD, you should manually create at least one administrative user account in OneLogin that does not exist in your third-party directory. This prevents administrators from being locked out of OneLogin if there are issues with the third-party directory, and vice versa.
To add users manually:
- Go to Users > All Users to open the All Users page, and click the New User button.
On the User Info page, verify that the user is activated, and add the user's name and email address, along with any other personal information you want.
If you have groups defined, you can also add the user to a group.
Add privileges, authentication settings, and applications.
When you click Save, the User Info tab changes, and the Authentication, Applications, and Activity tabs become available.
For more information about using these tabs to set up users, see:
You can also import users into OneLogin from a comma-separated values (CSV) file. See Importing Users from a CSV File.
