Add and manage users

The Identity API provides a set of functions to create and directly manage accounts in the Cloud Directory. For details on how to create and update accounts in the Cloud Directory, see Create and manage Cloud Directory users.

The API provides another set of functions that are generic to all users. You can apply these functions to CyberArk Identity Cloud Directory users, Active Directory users who are connected to the cloud service, and federated users. These functions enable you to perform actions such as reading information, inviting users to the portal, and setting authentication parameters for all users. See Perform generic user functions for details.

Note that for external accounts, you cannot manage account details for external users in CyberArk Identity, but must do so in the repository to which they belong.
