By default, the account you have signed up has the "Account Admin" role and can create multiple users within the tenant. Users can be assigned one or more roles. Based on the roles mapped, the user(s) will have the super-set of access to the functions and actions.

Integration of OKTA Single Sign-On (SSO) with CoreStack enables users who have OKTA SSO enabled to access CoreStack directly. This setting does not require any users to be created already in the CoreStack application. With this integration, users are sent invites to access CoreStack and do not need to use a password to sign-in.
After an account master is created, the user designated as Account Admin/Provider Admin/Delegation Admin can access CoreStack and enable OKTA settings. Refer to the Account Management user guide to learn how to create a new account master.
Perform the following steps to add the OKTA SSO setting:
- Navigate toSettings > Users > Security.

In the App Name box, type the OKTA application name.
Select the Auto Signup checkbox to access the mapped application automatically.
If the "Auto Signup" checkbox is not selected, then the Account Admin/Provider Admin/Delegation Admin must manually invite user(s) to access the account.
- Click Validate.
An authorized user with OKTA SSO settings enabled can now continue with an OKTA sign in (as shown below).
An Account Admin can invite users with an email ID to access an account in the product if the admin’s authentication type is set to SSO. Since a user's details are ideally available from the SSO identity provider, providing any additional user details is not required.
If the Auth Type is set to "CoreStack" in the Security settings, then you'll have to follow the steps in Creating New User to create a new user in CoreStack.
