Administrators may create and manage users via the User Management dashboard.
Once you've logged into your Coder deployment, the User Management dashboard is accessible under Manage > Users.
Creating a New User
To create a new user, go to Manage > Users > New User.
In the dialog window that opens, provide the new user's name and email address and select the Auth Type you want for the account.
- Select Built-In as your Auth Type if you want the user to access Coder with a username/password combination
- Select OpenID Connect as your Auth Type if you would like to use your organization's OpenID Connect Identity Provider
Finally, choose the Organization to which the user belongs. This will affect the images to which the user has access.
When done, click Create.
Coder will create the new user and display a Temporary Password. Provide this password to the user, which they will use along with their email to access their new account. For increased security, the new user will be prompted to change their password immediately after they log in.
Deleting a User
To delete a user, go to Manage > Users. Find the user you want to delete, and click the Vertical Elipses associated with that user.
You'll be prompted to confirm this action. Click Delete to proceed.
If you're using your organization's OpenID Connect Identity Provider to manage users, this process revokes the user's access to Coder, but it does not delete the user from your identity store.
