Create Users

Platform9 users exist across your cloud with roles and privileges defined for each region and tenant. Platform9 users are able to hold multiple roles across tenants and regions, meaning that a user could be an administrator of one region and tenant and a self-service user of another tenant

You must be an administrator to edit, create and delete users.

To create a user, follow the steps given below.
