Cisco+ Secure Connect - User Account Creation

Secure Connect is delivered via capabilities based on both Meraki and Umbrella dashboards. The goal of the account creation between dashboards is to create one unified experience between Secure Connect ( Meraki ) and Umbrella dashboard.

Using the same email account between Meraki and Umbrella for admin users while provisioning will enable logged-in Secure Connect users to automatically be logged into the Umbrella dashboard when clicking on any Umbrella link, regardless of whether they've manually logged into Umbrella.

During the account creation process, the default admin is created during the initial onboarding but any subsequent admins that need to be added must follow the below process for access to the dashboard.
