When creating new users using the HR API, the ADMIN organization is assigned to the users by default, however in restricted mode. You must then manually assign a Primary Organization through the GUI.

How do other IFS Maintenix users handle this when loading multiple users using the HR API?

Hi Bjarki,

I’ve been in touch with another customer who uses this API. The users are automatically created in Maintenix during an on boarding process in their HR software service. A manual process is in place to assign organizations and roles after the initial user creation.

There is a section detailing this information in the Human Resources API Guide:

All new users are added to the group of unassigned users in your default organization in IFS Maintenix. If you want to assign a new user to any organization, you must complete this action within IFS Maintenix manually.


These users appear in the ADMIN organization’s Unassigned Users tab, and they can be assigned to the ADMIN organization in bulk from this page. I have attached a sample below.
