Users are granted access to DC/OS by another authorized user. A default user is automatically created by the first user that logs in to the DC/OS cluster.

To manage users:

  1. Launch the DC/OS web interface and login with your username (Google, GitHub, and Microsoft) and password.

  2. Click on the System -> Organization tab and choose your action.

    Add users

    From the Users tab, click New User and fill in the new user email address. New users are automatically sent an email notifying them of access to DC/OS.

    Tip: Any user with access to DC/OS can invite more users. Each DC/OS user is an administrator, there is no explicit concept of privileges with DC/OS.
