Add a new user to the community by creating their user account.
By default, if your community uses LDAP or Active Directory to manage users,
new user accounts you create from the Admin Console will go into the local
application database (where content is stored). You will be able to edit user
account properties for LDAP-managed users if your LDAP provider allows it (by
default, it isn't allowed). For more information about using LDAP or Active Directory with
Jive, take a look at
and Active Directory Guide.
To create a new user account:
Navigate to People > Management > Create User.
Enter the user's basic information, including a username,
email address, and password. Note that some communities are preconfigured to use a user's email address
as their username.
Note: A username may not contain any of
the following characters: , / ? & #
To create this new account and edit its properties now, click Create User. In general, you should edit properties for the user account
while you're creating it. That's because the new account doesn't yet have
permission to do anything in the community.
To create this account and move on to creating another (without editing
account properties), click the Create & Create Another User
