People Administration

Record types

There are four "types" of Person records in Skills Base. The "type" is defined when the Person record is created and cannot be changed.

  • Single Sign On - This type of record is only encountered if you have enabled Single Sign On Integration and these records are created automatically during the Single Sign In process. Single Sign On records cannot have a local Skills Base password and can't be used to log in locally to the system. The only way to log into an Single Sign On account is via the Single Sign In process.
  • Local - This type of record is created by a Skills Base administrator by manually adding a person, or by adding a person by invitation. Local records can have a locally stored password which can be used to log into Skills Base. These accounts can also be logged into via Single Sign On if the email address from the Identity Provider exactly matches the email address of the Person record in Skills Base.
  • Import - This type of record is created by Skills Base support when an Administrator requests the Skills Base Support team to bulk-import People records from a CSV file. Contact out support team if you wish to obtain a copy of the template. Imported records behave the same as Local records.
  • API generated - This type of record is created via the Skills Base People Management API. For information see our API documentation. API generated records behave the same as Local records.
