As a tenant administrator, you can create a user account from the administrator user interface.

Users can access more than one tenant. If the user you are creating already has access to another tenant, then that user does not get a Welcome to VMware Learning Platform email. A user gets the Welcome to email only upon the first tenant to which access is granted.

The Welcome to VMware Learning Platform email includes a verification link. The user must use the link to verify the account. If the user does not verify, then VMware Learning Platform provides a one-week grace period. During the grace period, the user has access to VMware Learning Platform, but some features are restricted. Restricted features include social media, the sending of transcripts and sending an invite to friends. If the grace period expires and the user still has not verified the account, then VMware Learning Platform blocks all access.

VMware Cloud Services users need to assign tenant admin roles from the https://console.cloud.vmware.com for their product.
