titleNote:

You will never actually have to "create an account" in the Coveo Cloud V2 platform.

The first time you log into the platform using one of the supported identity providers, the identity you authenticate as is automatically registered in the platform. Thereafter, you only need to authenticate as this registered identity to log back into the platform.

Example
  • Alice Smith logs into the Coveo Cloud V2 platform for the very first time. She decides to use Google as an identity provider.
  • Once Alice has successfully logged into her Google account (e.g., asmith@example.com), the Google identity provider forwards an OAuth2 token to the Coveo Cloud V2 platform.
  • The Coveo Cloud V2 platform validates this OAuth2 token and registers the asmith@example.com-google identity.
  • From now on, whenever Alice logs into the Coveo Cloud V2 platform using the Google identity provider to authenticate as the owner of the asmith@example.com Google account, she is recognized in the platform as the asmith@example.com-google identity.
  • If Alice subsequently decides to log into the platform using another identity provider, such as Office 365, the platform registers a new identity for this account (presumably asmith@example.com-office365).
  • Similarly, if Alice uses the Google identity provider to authenticate as the owner of another Google account (e.g., asmith2@example.com), the platform registers a new identity for this account (i.e., asmith2@example.com-google).
