Required Permissions

Creating a User in the Rapid7 InsightCloudSec Console

To create a user in the Rapid7 InsightCloudSec Console

  1. Log in as an administrator to the Rapid7 InsightCloudSec console. Click Identity Management and add a user. Axonius only uses the Username and Password field, so it doesn't matter what you specify in the Email field.

  2. In the Identity Management page, select Roles > Add Role. Create a role that allows Viewing only and enable Global Scope.

  3. Select User Groups > Add User Group. Add a new group, then assign the role to the newly created user.
