Creating a New User

The following code snippet demonstrates the request construction for creating a new user in Amazon WorkDocs. Note that this is not a valid operation for a Connected AD configuration. If you want to add a new user to Amazon WorkDocs in the Connected AD configuration then the user must already be present in the enterprise directory and then you would make a call to the ActivateUser API to activate the specified user in Amazon WorkDocs.

In the example below we are creating a new user with a storage quota of 1 gigabytes.

CreateUserRequest request = new CreateUserRequest(); request.setGivenName("GivenName"); request.setOrganizationId("d-12345678c4"); // Passwords should: // Be between 8 and 64 characters // Contain three of the four below: // A Lowercase Character // An Uppercase Character // A Number // A Special Character request.setPassword("Badpa$$w0rd"); request.setSurname("surname"); request.setUsername("UserName"); StorageRuleType storageRule = new StorageRuleType(); storageRule.setStorageType(StorageType.QUOTA); storageRule.setStorageAllocatedInBytes(new Long(1048576l)); request.setStorageRule(storageRule); CreateUserResult result = workDocsClient.createUser(request);

You can obtain a Amazon WorkDocs Organization ID from the AWS console using the following steps:

Obtaining an Organization Id

  1. In the AWS Directory Service console navigation pane, select Directories.

  2. The Directory ID corresponding to your Amazon WorkDocs site is the Organization ID for that site.
