The Create User function is for administrators to establish new users in the enterprise directory and the SecureAuth IdP environment.

1. Create a New Realm for the Create User function

2. The SecureAuth IdP directory Service Account must have the write privileges to add users

3. Configure the following tabs in the Web Admin before configuring the Post Authentication tab:

  • Overview – the description of the realm and SMTP connections must be defined
  • Data – an enterprise directory must be integrated with SecureAuth IdP
  • Workflow – the way in which users will access this application must be defined
  • Registration Methods – the 2-Factor Authentication methods that will be used to access this page (if any) must be defined


1. Restrict the realm to only admins in the Membership Connection Settings section by selecting Allow Access from the User Group Check Type dropdown, provide the User Groups name(s) (e.g. "admins"), and the Groups Field in the enterprise directory that contains group information of each user

This is not required, as a company may wish to have users create their own accounts

Click Save once the configurations have been completed and before leaving the Data page to avoid losing changes


2. Select Create User from the Authenticated User Redirect dropdown in the Post Authentication tab in the Web Admin

3. An unalterable URL will be auto-populated in the Redirect To field, which will append to the domain name and realm number in the address bar (Authorized/CreateUser.aspx)

4. A customized post authentication page can be uploaded, but it is not required


5. Select the type of User ID that will be asserted to the Create User function from the User ID Mapping dropdown

This is typically the Authenticated User ID

No configuration is required for the Name ID Format and Encode to Base64 fields


6. Select HideShow, or Required for each SecureAuth Field (corresponding to the Profile Properties in the Data tab) to elect what will appear and what can be modified on the Create User page

Hide will not show the SecureAuth Field on the page

Show will show the SecureAuth Field on the page, and the administrator can edit the information

Required will show the SecureAuth Field on the page, and the administrator must edit the information

7. Select Enter Manually to create a specific password or Generate Automatically to create a random password from the Password field

8. Choose whether to Mask Password and whether the user Must Change Password after the account is created

9. Select the KBQ Count

10. Provide the Group List to assign the new user into the appropriate groups, separated by commas

11. Choose whether to send an Email Notification to the user when the account is created

Click Save once the configurations have been completed and before leaving the Post Authentication page to avoid losing changes


12. Click View and Configure FormsAuth keys / SSO token to configure the token/cookie settings and to configure this realm for Single Sign-on (SSO)

These are optional configurations
