Creates a global user. See About global users for more on Edge users, user types, and user roles. 


You must pass all information to the call, including first name, last name, email address, and password.


After you create the user in an organization, you must assign the user to a role in an organization. Roles determine the access rights of the user on Edge. See Add a user to a role for more.

The user cannot log in to the Edge UI, and does not appear in the list of users in the Edge UI, until you assign it to a role in an organization.
