The CreateUser method can be utilized to create a new user within Checkbox. This user is created with default roles and permissions. You can easily create a user with profile properties via the “Profile” object that you submit with the method call. The sample on the right displays how to create a user with a profile.

class Test
    static void Main()
        var client = new UserManagementServiceClient();

        //Build a user profile
        SimpleNameValueCollection userProfile = null;
        var profileProperties = new SimpleNameValue[2];

        profileProperties[0] = new SimpleNameValue { Name = "firstName", Value = "Test-FirstName" };
        profileProperties[1] = new SimpleNameValue { Name = "lastName", Value = "Test-LastName" };

        userProfile = new SimpleNameValueCollection { NameValueList = profileProperties };
        //End building of user profile

        var newUser = client.CreateUser(authToken, "Test-Username", "Test-Password", "Test-Email@testemail.com",
            userProfile, true);

        if (!newUser.CallSuccess)

        Console.WriteLine("User created with username {0}", newUser.ResultData);

        //Always close the client
