Create External users

Create an external user when you want a user to be able to use third-party credentials (eg. from Salesforce or ZenDesk) to log in to the intranet.

Before you begin

Please contact ThoughtFarmer support to discuss using External users before following these instructions.

Ensure that there is a Custom SAML external login provider added for the third-party application that your External users will sign in through. Configure the third-party application to use SAML sign in.
