  4. First Name. Enter the user’s first name.
  5. Last Name. Enter the user’s last name.
  6. Email. Enter the user’s email address. We recommend that the email match one of your corporate domains of your Sumo Logic account and not be sent to a personal account.

A user who logs in to Sumo Logic for the first time is prompted to change the temporary password.

  9. Click Save when you are done assigning roles to the user.
