To add users, you can:

  • add new user accounts from the Users page of Talend Administration Center.
  • create users with LDAP. Creating a user account with LDAP is slightly different from the default operation. With LDAP, only the Distinguished name and the role are required, while with the default operation, the First name, Last name and Password are all required.

    When you want to use the LDAP system to list and authenticate users, you must first activate LDAP authentication on the Configuration page of Talend Administration Center. For more information on activating LDAP authentication, see Setting up an LDAP(S) protocol.

  • create users via an Identity Provider system (Okta, SiteMinder).

    Note that once Single-Sign On is enabled, you will not be able to manage from Talend Administration Center all the user settings handled by the Identity Provider, such as user passwords, project types on which users are assigned or user roles.

    When you want to use an Identity Provider system to list and authenticate users, you must first activate both SSO and Role Mapping on the Configuration page of Talend Administration Center. For more information, see Enabling SSO.

You cannot activate both LDAP and SSO at the same time as user management needs to be handled either in LDAP or in your Identity Provider.

For more information on the user creation modes, see the following sub-sections.
