Create and manage users

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

Docker Universal Control Plane provides built-in authentication and also integrates with LDAP directory services. If you want to manage users and groups from your organization’s directory, choose LDAP. Learn to integrate with an LDAP directory.

When using the UCP built-in authentication, you need to create users and optionally grant them UCP administrator permissions.

Each new user gets a default permission level so that they can access the swarm.

To create a new user, go to the UCP web UI, and navigate to the Users page.

Click the Create User button, and fill-in the user information.

Check the Is a UCP admin? option, if you want to grant permissions for the user to change the swarm configuration and manage grants, roles, and collections.

Finally, click the Create button to create the user.
