    • To create a new user, select Local user.
    • To create an external user associated with a supported external identity provider (IdP), select SAML/IdP user.
  4. Based on the selected user type, provide the first name, last name, email ID, and login ID to access BMC Helix Portal. Confirm the details provided.
