The "Users" view allows your to search, create and inspect Nimbus users. The availability of users is directly tied to your (Azure) user directory.

(lightbulb) All Nimbus admins have access to the "Users" management view, limited to the respective tenant and with access restrictions set by Roles and Permissions. A partner admin may select in between different tenants to inspect the corresponding users.


This feature is still in experimental / beta stadium. Performance and usability are still being evaluated by our users. Bugs and changes may occur. Both scope and design may still change significantly.

The Users view consists of the following elements:

  • A list of users with a search. You can search users by common or unique criteria such as @domain or their O365 ID.
  • A user detail view, opened when clicking on or creating a user. The view is distinguished by several tabs as explained further below.

About Nimbus User Management

After Service Provisioning Nimbus creates and synchronizes service users based on their Organization Unit and team affiliation as part of the Microsoft Teams UI and channel management.

In this default mode of operation …


(lightbulb)Outside of this default it is also possible to create services with different user assignment types via the Service Administration.

Known Issue - User synchronicity on deleted teams

When a MS Teams teams is removed manually - without prior Uninstallation of the related Nimbus service - the users are not shown within the user administration list anymore. However, the team and its members are still shown within Services until the Nimbus team is fully removed from Azure. 

Notes:

  • In the user administration users will only be shown when part of at least one (still) operational service. This is synched with your tenant user directory and intended design.
  • Nimbus keeps a history of the team members (retrieved from MS teams channel) even after the channel was removed from the teams client. To the User / Service Administrator this will appear as a mismatch of user count.

Adding Users

By default every user that is part of a Nimbus service gets added automatically. You can add new users manually from your Azure user directory, e.g. to inspect the user details and identify if the user is still related to a team.

(lightbulb)  Nimbus will add users to this list whenever a new service team is being provisioned.

Deleting Users

By default Nimbus automatically creates users that are created during Service Provisioning. Users automatically provisioned via - or still assigned to - a service team cannot be deleted.

(lightbulb) Users are only removed automatically when they were removed from the Azure user directory.
(lightbulb) You can only delete users from the list if they were manually added by you or another administrator or are not part of a team anymore. A tooltip will inform you why deletion is not possible.
