Create new cloudera-sso users in CDP

Hi,

how can I create, as Account Administrator, a CDP user using the default cloudera-sso IdP? 

I've already set an external IdP with SAML, but I would set a new local account and use it to sign-in with Cloudera SSO.

Thank you, best regards

Andrea

Hello Andrea, 

 

You can create a machine user for programmatic access.

If you want a complete new user who can access the application (CDP) from support portal then you will need to have administrative case for new user creation and then you can enable SSO for that use. 

 

I hope I have answered your question.  If your question is answered can you please mark this comment "Accept as Solution" 

 

Thanks,

Hello @andrea_pretotto 

 

Good Day. 

 

CDP Account Administrator : 

You can create a administrative case to the cloudera support with the name and email address of the user (whom you want to have as CDP admin user). 

 

You can also reach out to your Cloudera Accounts Team. 

 

I understand you already have an external IDP integrated with CDP and would like to use the new user (CDP admin user) with SS0. 

 

You can later enable SS0 for the user from User Management Tab.

Hi @Azhar_Shaikh,

thank you for the answer.

My account has the administrator role, and I would like to create other "normal" CDP users (who can log in through Cloudera SSO). Is it necessary to create a case?

Thank you again, best regards

Andrea
