Adding users to your account

You can add users in DronaHQ using the following 4 ways:

  • Send invites to your users to sign-in or sign-up with their email and password
  • Auto activate users with a preset password (Users can always change their passwords in the end-user portal)
  • Using SSO and JIT (Just In Time) user addition
  • By configuring SCIM to auto provision users from an IDP
Please Note

You you need to have admin or owner level privileges to access or modify these configurations.

Send invites to users

You need to Navigate to Manage Users -> Add Users where you can invite multiple users at a time. These invited users will get an email with the instructions to verify and activate their account and create a password. After activating their account, depending on the role of the user they can either login to the end-user portal or/and the creator portal instructions and details of which are sent on the invite email itself.

You need the following details to invite users:

  • User name
  • Email
  • Password (Optional - only if Auto-activate is selected)
  • User Group
  • User Role

Please Note

In case the invite email doesn't reach the user for whatever reasons, the admin can check the invited user in the Manage Users section and click on Activate Link to view it and manually send the user the activation link.

Auto activate users with a password

In DronaHQ you can also Auto-activate users instead of inviting and sending them an activation email. This method should generally be avoided as it can potentially be insecure with pre-set passwords. It should only be used in specific cases where invite emails can't be sent for various reasons.

Manual emails

Since these users are Auto-activated you will need to manually inform them or email them the login links etc. We provide an email template which you can use for sending out these emails manually to your users.

Using SSO and JIT

DronaHQ supports SSO on both cloud and self-hosted editions. You can configure any of the following types of SSOs with the IDP of your choice like Okta.

Once the SSO is configured the users can login directly without having a separate email and password for DronaHQ.
