New user model
This doc is about managing users who are on our newer user model.
This doc explains how to find and use the user management UI and how to do some common user management tasks.
User management UI
To find your New Relic organization's user management options: From the user menu, select Administration. Here are the user management-related UI pages you can find there:
- User management (link to UI): Use this to add users, update user type, manage users' groups, approve user upgrade requests, and control session settings.
- Access management (link to UI): Use this UI to view, create, and manage groups and roles.
- API keys: Use the API keys UI to view and manage your users' API keys.
- Domain capture: Use domain capture to route your users into the right place when they attempt to sign up for New Relic. Learn more about domain capture.
- Authentication domains (link to UI): Use this to control how your users are added (from New Relic or from an identity provider), how they log in (manually or via SAML SSO), and more. For details, see Authentication domains.
For tips on managing users, see Common tasks and our User management videos.
The easiest way to see what your user management permissions are is to go to the user management UI and see what you have access to.
Some user management requirements and restrictions:
- This doc explains how to manage users on our newer user model.
- To add and edit groups and roles, your organization must have Pro or Enterprise edition.
- Permissions-related requirements:
- Requires a user type of core user or full platform user.
- Most user management capabilities require the organization- and authentication domain-related administration settings.
- To avoid configuration conflicts, try to ensure that only one person in your organization is managing users at a time.
User management UI
Here's a screenshot of the User management UI. We'll explain the column headers below.
- Name: The user's name.
- Email: The user's email address. Some notes on messages you may see present:
Pending: This user is added to New Relic but hasn't yet logged in for the first time. Note that even in the
Pendingstate, users are still considered provisioned: this means if they have a billable user type they are billable.
- This icon indicates
Pending invite approval. These users are not yet billable. For more on how inviting teammates works, see Add users.
- Type: The user's user type.
- Groups: The groups that a user belongs to.
- Last active: The last date a user was logged into New Relic. It does not track API activity performed with a user's .
Last activecan be useful for deciding to downgrade a user to a lower user type.
- ID: A user's New Relic-assigned ID.
