Provisioning User Accounts
How do user accounts get created in PlusPlus?
The typical workflow is that, when a new user visits the site via SSO for the first time, their account is automatically created for them. This is seamless.
However, what if you want to assign a new hire to an onboarding track, and that person has not yet visited PlusPlus? Since there’s no account for this person, we don’t know about them and thus can’t assign them to a track or enroll to an event.
For this use case, there’s another way.
Bulk Add People
Here’s how to add many people at once:
- Go to Menu > People page
- Click on Bulk Add People
- Enter a list of emails to add to PlusPlus
We’ll provision those accounts so they are known in the system.
Note that security policy on what type of email addresses are allowed in the system still applied. For example, typically only the @yourdomain.com is a valid pattern.
Automatically Provision Accounts from Workday
Depending on how we integrate with your HRIS, typically Workday, we may be able to automatically provision new hires. To do that, please talk to your PlusPlus Advisor.
On The Horizon
We’re exploring using SCIM (System for Cross-domain Identity Management) for automatic provisioning of user accounts. If this is of interest, please talk to your PlusPlus Advisor.
