Self-Service User Management User Guide

Self-Service User Management allows you to create and update user settings in IAS Signal without needing coordination with an IAS representative. To leverage this offering, work with your IAS account team to get the User Admin role added to your login.

With Self-Service User Management, you can edit users and permission users across teams that their respective admins have access to. You can create and deactivate users, and assign and unassign roles within your teams. 

Self-Service Users Blurred

IAS Signal auto-generates usernames when you create a new user and sends an email confirmation to the Admin. Also, Signal sends a password activation email to the new users.

With the Self-Service User Management, IAS is removed from the management and oversight of your user management decisions. However IAS created a 'User History' in the Admin user page's audit log for your auditing needs.

Access the Self-Service User Management through the Admin icon on the left side bar. Then select Users.

Self-Service Admin User

Create Users

Your IAS representative creates the initial Self-Service Admin user for you. Reach out to your representative for more information. 

You can create new users once you have at least one user with the User Admin role. Each user contains roles to control Signal permissions, along with assigned Teams and DSPs. The user only sees data for the assigned teams and DSP (when assigned the Programmatic Traders role).

IAS Signal generates the usernames and sets default roles for you (you can override the default settings) and sends the Self-Service User Admin an email for each user activation.
