  • Step 2 : In the window that appears, fill in all the information off the new user.
    • His/her last name, first name and email address (be careful, an email address can not be added more than once).
    • An expiration date (this is optional and is the date on which the user's account will be automatically deleted).
    • An external provider status, if this is the case (this will not give any particular right to the user, but will simply allow you to visually mark a user external to your company, with the symbol c56dd054-d21d-477a-afd8-f0575ee2abfa.png).

Once this new user is added, he will receive an invitation in his mailbox to create his account on the application.

When an account is pending, the symbol mceclip5.png will appear next to the name of the user, as well as the mention account_not_activated.png in the right information panel.

If necessary, you can resend a link to the user by clicking on « Resend activation link » in the same information panel.

Creation of an SSO user

Creating a new SSO account is automatic : simply share the URL of your LockSelf environment with new users. They will be able to create an account by going through the SSO tab and then setting their own PIN code.

 

Importing user accounts in bulk

Importing and sending mass account creation invitations requires the creation of a CSV file.

  • Step 1 : Create a CSV file, using the following nomenclature :
Email;FirstName;LastName;ExpirationDate;IsPresta;IsSSO
    • Email : user's email 
    • FirstName : first name of the user
    • LastName : user's last name
    • ExpirationDate : expiration date (if no date, mention 0)
    • IsPresta : user provider (if the user is a provider, mention1, otherwise 0)
    • IsSSO : user of your AD (if the user is part of the Enterprise Directory, mention1, otherwise 0)

Here is what your file should look like in Excel :
