You can manage Conga Platform users using the User Administration user interface. The Users tab allows you to:

  • Create, update, and manage users.
  • Import user information.
  • Assign roles to users.
  • Set default options for users. For example, locale, time zone, date and time format, and other preferences

To create a new user

You can also create a new user by cloning the user with the closest match. Conga recommends cloning an existing user to save time. For more information on cloning the existing user, see the Working with Users section.

  1. Log in to the Conga Platform as an admin user.
  2. Click the App Launcher () icon from the top-left corner > Admin Console > Users.
    By default, a list of users is displayed.
  3. Click Add to add a new external user or Add Guest to add a new guest user. The User Details screen appears.

    The Add Guest button only appears when the Enable Guest & Customer Community User option is turned on at the organization level. For more information, see Viewing Conga Org Details. You only need a guest user account if you are using the Conga Digital Commerce product. This user has standard security settings that control what parts of the storefront guest users can access. These settings limit what guest users can access in the records that support the storefront.

  4. Enter values in the following fields:

    The fields on the screen vary depending on whether you create an external, community, or guest user.

    User Type

    Select the user type (External User or Community User) from the dropdown list.

    Enter the user's external ID. This can be any unique alphanumeric text used to identify the user. This ID is used when migrating users from one environment to another. You can enter up to 2000 characters in this field.

    • For the Salesforce identity provider user, the user's unique Salesforce ID (18 digits) must be added as an external ID. For more information on how to get the 18-digit user ID, see Getting Salesforce User ID.

    Enter the keyword to search and select the appropriate role to be assigned to a new user. A role is assigned to users performing similar tasks and consists of a set of permissions. For more information, see Managing Roles and Permission Groups.

    • When you create a guest user, the GuestUserRole role is automatically assigned to the guest user, therefore this field is not displayed.
    • For a community user, search and select the CommunityUserRole role.
    Permission Groups

    Select permission group(s) from the list. Permission groups are assigned to users for additional access that is not part of the selected role. Permission groups determine a given user's access to objects and records, and permissions to perform actions in the Conga Revenue Lifecycle Platform. For more information, see Managing Roles and Permission Groups.

    • When you create a guest user, the GuestUserPermissionGroup permission group is automatically assigned to the guest user, therefore this field is not displayed; however, administrators can update the GuestUserPermissionGroup to allow or amend permission for any out-of-the-box and custom objects.
    • When you create a community user, the CommunityUserPermissionGroup permission group is automatically assigned to the user as part of the CommunityUserRole. Administrators can update the CommunityUserPermissionGroup to allow or amend permission for any out-of-the-box and custom objects.

    If you do not provide a time zone, the application uses the organization's time zone and assigns it to the user.

    If you do not provide a locale, the application uses the organization's locale and assigns it to the user.

Based on the Timezone, Locale, and Currency selections, the Positive Currency Format, Negative Currency Format, Short Date Format, Log Date Format, Time Format, Decimal Symbol, Digit Group, Digit Grouping Symbol, and Negative Number Format information will be added to the new user. All of these fields can be changed while editing the user. For more information on how to edit a user, see Working with Users.
