The following instructions are for websites using the default UMN Drupal configuration.
Drupal is highly customizable, and your site may have different steps for completing the task. Additionally, your role in Drupal may not have the proper permissions to complete the task. Contact your site administrator for additional information.
Click Menu in the Administrator toolbar.
Click People in the Menu toolbar.
Click +Add User
Enter the new user’s InternetID in the Username field
Enter the new user’s UMN email address in the E-mail address field
Choose a random, complex password and enter it in the Password fields
Because UMN Drupal uses central authentication, this password will never be used
Ensure the checkbox for Enable this user to leverage SAML authentication is checked
Note: If you do not see the checkbox, ensure you have the permission Change SAML Authentication Setting for Individual Accounts enabled for your role (ex: user administrator, site manager, administrator). To find the permissions, click on People in the administration menu, then click the Permissions tab, then scroll down to the SimpleSAML.php Authentication category in the left menu.
Click Create New Account.
Keep in mind that anyone who tries to log into your website using his or her Internet ID and password will initiate an account. The user will have the authenticated user role, but otherwise will have no other roles on the site.
