Managing user access to orgs and spaces

Make sure the user has a cloud.gov account

Anyone with a .mil or .gov account can sign up for their own cloud.gov account with a sandbox space in their agency’s cloud.gov sandbox org.

To invite someone to a non-sandbox org, including federal employees and federal contractors without .gov or .mil email addresses, send them an invite. This may prompt you to log into your cloud.gov account first.

Then, confirm with them that they have received and accepted the invite. Now they have a cloud.gov account!

Adding roles via the dashboard for users to access orgs and spaces

After a user has a cloud.gov account and has logged in, an Org Manager can assign roles using the dashboard as follows.
