Managing Users and Teams

To manage users and teams, you must have administrator privileges.

Adding, removing, and setting privileges for users

To start, open the Settings menu at far right on the navigation bar and select Members.

Adding users to an organization

To add users to an organization, click Invite Members at upper right.

Alternatively, if you are not already on the Members page for your organization, you can open the Settings menu and select Invite Members.

Enter the email addresses of the users that you wish to invite to your organization (one per line, or comma-separated). If there is no existing SignalFx account belonging to that email address, the user will be asked to create one. The user will be displayed on the list after signing up.
