After you create a local directory in Workspace ONE Access service, you can modify its settings at any time.

You can change the following settings.
  • Change the directory name.
  • Add, delete, or rename domains.
    • Domain names must be unique across all directories in the service.
    • When you change a domain name, the users that were associated with the old domain are associated with the new domain.
    • The directory must have at least one domain.
    • You cannot add a domain to the System Directory or delete the System Domain.
  • Add new user attributes or make an existing attribute required or optional.
    • If the local directory does not have any users yet, you can add new attributes as either optional or required, and change existing attributes to required or optional.
    • If you have already created users in the local directory, you can add new attributes as optional attributes only, and change existing attributes from required to optional. You cannot make an optional attribute required after users are created.
    • The attributes userName, firstName, lastName, and email are always required for local directories.
    • As user attributes are defined at the global level in the Workspace ONE Access service, any new attributes you add are displayed in all directories in the service.
  • Change the order in which attributes appear.
