The content below is intended for Organization Admins and Organization Billing Admins. For conceptual information about managing users and roles and possible setups, visit User and role management.
Follow the steps below to create a new user. Once you add a user, Cloud Observability sends them an email inviting them to create an account.
Click Invite user to send the user an email asking them to set their password and sign in.
The new user appears on the page. You and other Organization Admin or Organization Billing Admin users can change their role if needed.

If you’re not using SSO, users can change their password. Follow these steps to change your password:
Follow these steps to change an existing user’s role:
Cloud Observability displays <email> roles updated and returns to the Users page.
You can delete a single user or delete multiple users in bulk. Once you delete a user, they can no longer access Cloud Observability.
Follow these steps to delete users:
In Cloud Observability, click Settings > User management > Users.
On the Users page:
Cloud Observability displays <email> deleted from <organization> and returns to the Users page.
Cloud Observability assigns the default role to all new users. You can change users’ roles once they’re in the system.
Don’t set the default role to Organization Admin. If you set it to Organization Admin, all new users get full access to Cloud Observability.
Cloud Observability displays <organization> default role updated.
Use the Cloud Observability API to manage users in bulk. The API has two endpoints for creating, deleting, and listing Cloud Observability users.
Use Terraform to manage user roles in bulk. Cloud Observability has these user-management resources:
lightstep_user_role_binding - Assign or reassign organization and project roles.
lightstep_saml_group_mappings - Set up SAML group mapping.
