Create User

Create a user.



To create user, first instantiate User and set UserName and other basic properties such as FirstName, LastName and Email.

If you are creating a tenant administrator, then you need to set TenantAdmin to true.

Next, get the instance of CrayonApiClient and then get the client token using the instance. This client token will be passed when creating the user

Finally, call Users.Create() method to create user by passing the token and the instance of User.

var user = new User
        UserName = "",
        FirstName = "Firstname",
        LastName = "LastName",
        Email = "",
        TenantAdmin = true // set true if you are creating a tenant administrator, otherwise not necessary to set

var client = new CrayonApiClient("");
var token = client.Tokens.GetUserToken(clientId, clientSecret, userName, password).GetData().AccessToken;
var createUserResponse = client.Users.Create(token, user);

if (createUserResponse.IsSuccessStatusCode)
    // To set the password
    var userId = createUserResponse.GetData().Id;
    client.Users.ChangePassword(token, userId, "newpassword");
