Can I bypass email activation when creating new users?

Is it possible to bypass email activation when creating new users?


Bypassing email activation is possible for customers who are running their Contrast server On-Premise. Users of the Contrast SaaS system will need to be activated via email.

For On-Prem customers, as a SuperAdmin, on the Users tab >> Add User screen there is an option, "Require Email Activation".  If you uncheck that box, it will allow you to define a password for the user.  The user will then be able to login using that password, bypassing the email activation step:


When creating users at SuperAdmin level in bulk via the CSV upload, you can specify a password, as described here.  You need to have an Email Activation column set to false and then a Password column.
