Create a person with Person API

This guide will walk you through different ways of creating a person via Person API.

Creating activated person consists of 3 steps:

  1. Creating person with attributes
  2. Optional Coupling with external IdP When you are dealing with IdPs other than internal Username & Password you will need to couple CIM account with external IdP.
  3. Account Sign-up which will change account status to activated. This can be done by providing a password - for UNP IdP or without a password - when account is already coupled with external IdP.

Aforementioned three API calls are equivalent to a single Activation call.

Other, additional steps to perform account activation (when activation feature) is enabled) are described in Person activation section
