Getting Started with Clearlogin - Adding Users


To begin, you will need to add your users from an Identity Provider (IdP).  An IdP is a user database such as Microsoft's Active Directory (AD) (running on a Windows Server), Google Apps, Amazon Web Services, or Clearlogin's own Clearlogin Directory.

Identity Providers are added to Clearlogin via Identity Sources.  An Identity Source is the connection between Clearlogin and your Identity Provider.

For example, you could link AD to a Clearlogin Identity Source by clicking on Identity Sources in the navigation bar of the Admin Dashboard and then selecting Add New.

You will be brought to the Add A New Identity Source page where in this case you would select AD.

On the New Active Directory Identity Source page you can configure such options as User Domain, Hostname, and Search Filters to help connect your AD database and narrow down which OUs (organizational units), groups, etc. that are to be searched.

Once you have configured your Identity Source, any user that is in that IdP's database will be able to log into Clearlogin with their credentials for that IdP.

Once a user logs in for the first time, a Clearlogin account will be automatically provisioned for them (visible by clicking on Settings and then selecting User Profiles on the navigation bar).  The user will be always able to log into their Clearlogin account by using their IdP's credentials.
