  • Manage users without SSO #

    There are two ways usernames can be granted permission to log into Starburst Galaxy:

    • Direct access, maintained in Galaxy.
    • Single sign-on (SSO) access, maintained in an external identity provider. See the Single sign-on overview for a discussion of SSO access.

    Users assigned to a role with the Create user privilege, including the accountadmin role, can add usernames to Galaxy’s internal direct access list.

    Direct access users #

    The Users pane of the Access navigation menu is where you can create new users, and view and manage all configured users in your Starburst Galaxy account.

    The list of usernames shows ten names per pane by default. Click Users per page to select five names per pane. Click > and < to navigate among panes in a long username list.

    Select user list size

    Add a new user #

    Follow these steps to add a user and assign roles:

    1. In the navigation menu, expand Access, then select Users to display the list of the configured users in your Starburst Galaxy account.

    2. Click Add user.

    3. In the Add user dialog, enter a valid email address in the Email field. The email address serves as a login username.

    4. Expand Roles, then select one or more roles for the new user.
