How to create a user in SAP Cloud ALM:

  1. Go to your IAS(Identity Access Service).
  2. Create User using their email id and select the option “Send Activation Link”.
  3. Then the user will get welcome email from IAS notification and the user needs to activate his/her account and set his/her password.
  4. In case, the user is not able to activate the account, then click on “forgot password” and wait for 10 mins to receive an email from SAP for password reset.
  5. Once you set/reset your password, login to your cloud alm tenant using the link that you would have got in welcome email.
  6. After this, the admin of Cloud ALM needs to assign you roles based on the requirement and usage.
  7. The roles can be assigned, in the “User Management” tab of SAP Cloud ALM.




So the user creation and on-boarding an user in SAP Cloud ALM has become very easy and rapid. The roles and user assignment is very easy and convenient.


Keep learning and keep sharing !!!

      Nilabh - Thank you for this blog post as well as the others you have made. Glad to see the excellent participation.

      I will point out there is a description of the roles in Cloud ALM available via Roles Collection in the Setup and Administration Guide.

      The description of the Cloud ALM roles have been very helpful when deciding which Cloud ALM users need which roles. Enjoy!

      Why do you tag CALM content with Focused Run?

      I'm grateful for this post.
      I question if there is an assumption here.. that CALM is validating users against IAS; that users must be stored and active in IAS.
      What if IAS is a passthrough, acting as reverse proxy, to another IDP?

      We are not storing users in IAS (multiple reasons and if you want we can take a chat on that) but instead are using IAS to authenticate the users.

      Best Regards, Wallace
