Create and Manage Users

  • Updated


You can create users in Demandbase individually or add users in bulk.

After you create a user, you can change their permission sets, department, or user view. You can also reset the user's password if you're not set up to use Single Sign On (SSO) for log in or delete the user.

Important: You cannot change a user’s login email address after creating the user. We recommend that you delete and recreate the user using the new login email address.


You must have Admin privileges. 

Steps: Create a User

  1. From the left navigation bar, go to Settings_N.png Settings > User Management > Users and click Create New.
  2. In the window that opens, enter the following:
    • Name: Enter the user’s full name.
    • Email: Enter the user’s email address.
    • Permissions Sets: Select one or more permission sets for the user. Add multiple permission sets by selecting each one individually from the drop-down list.
    • Department: Select the user’s department.
    • View: Select the user view for the user.

  3. Click Create.
