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 Active Directory to a Clearlogin Identity Source by logging into your Clearlogin Admin Console ( and selecting Identity Sources​, from the navigation bar on the left.

On the proceeding page, click on the New Identity Source button at the bottom.

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

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 User Profiles on the navigation bar).  The user will be always able to log into their Clearlogin account by using their IdP's credentials.

AD Identity Source configuration is explained in much deeper detail in our Active Directory Identity Source article.
