Step-by-step instruction for the operator

  1. Log in to Identity Manager Operator with your user account.

To create one single user:

  1. In the Quick search drop-down list, select User.
  2. Click Create user Addon LDAP.
    1. You have two possibilities to create the user:
      1. Import by LDAP (User creation via LDAP connection, see step 3).
      2. Manual input (User creation in Identity Manager via editing data, same as in Create user, see step 4).
  3. To create the user via LDAP connection, select Import by LDAP.

    1. Click Next.

      To cancel the process, see "Cancel the process" below.

    2. Click Search to search for an active user in the LDAP directory.

    3. Select the user that you want to import (only single import is possible).
    4. Click OK.
    5. Click Next to import the user data and create the user in Identity Manager.
    6. If the user already exists in Identity Manager, a pop up is shown with information that user already exists. Click Cancel to quit the process or click Try again to go back to the search in the LDAP page.
  4. To instead create the user via manual input, select Manual input.
    1. Click Next.
    2. The same input form as in Create user is shown. Follow the steps in that instruction.

To cancel the process:

  • Click Cancel to close the process.
  • Click Next to proceed with the process.
