Users & Groups

In GIS Cloud Manager under the Users & Groups tab, you can create and manage your organization, assign licenses, manage user groups, and check your personal and login information.

In the list below find out how to use all of these options:

Assign a license to users

Every subscription after buying has to be assigned to a user, otherwise, you will not have permission to use it, apart from Map Portal, which license doesn’t have to be assigned to the user.

Learn more about assigning Map Editor and Map Viewer license, MDC license and storage in our user guides.

Create a new user

Users can create a new user who will become a part of the organization. 

Learn more about creating a new user in our user guide. 

Organize users in groups

If there are a lot of users in your organization, then organizing them in groups is very helpful for data collection and collaboration.
