Organization creation and management


Introduction to organizations and accounts

One Identity Starling requires you to have a Starling Platform organization and account in order to access the services. These organizations and accounts are created and accessed in one of two ways:

  1. General accounts: This type of account setup uses Starling Platform to authenticate users.
  2. Work accounts: This type of account setup depends on there being a fully configured Azure AD tenant that is capable of authenticating users. Starling Platform will redirect users with an existing work account to the Azure AD tenant for authentication when they initially create an organization within Starling Platform and for all future access.

Once you have created and accessed an organization and account, the title bar is used to manage them:

  • : If multiple organizations are associated with your account, this button (displaying the name of the organization you are currently viewing) appears and opens a drop-down menu that allows you to move between organizations. See the documentation related to your subscribed services for information on how to create and manage accounts affiliated with multiple organizations.
  • : This button (displaying the first name of the user) opens a drop-down menu that allows you to select one of the following options:
    • Sign out - Clicking this option signs you out of One Identity Starling.

Creating a new organization

To begin using Starling Platform and its associated services, you must first create an organization.

To create an organization and account

  1. Open the Starling Platform site (

  2. From the Starling home page, click TRY STARLING.

  3. Select the geography in which your organization's data will be located. For more information, click Learn more about this choice.

  4. Review the legal notice and accept the use of cookies by clicking Accept. This will allow Starling Platform to store your information for future logins.

  5. In the email address field, enter the email address that will be associated with the account. The email address must be less than 64 characters for the local-part and for each domain part (the full email must be less than 255 characters). You need access to the specified email account to complete your registration and any future communications regarding your organization and account will be sent to this email address.

  6. (Optional) Use the button if you need to change the geography previously selected (United States or European Union) in which your Starling account will be created.

    CAUTION: This is your last chance to change the geography. Once you have created your organization, you will be unable to change the geography since this selection determines where and how your data will be stored.

  7. Click Next.

    NOTE: At this point Starling Platform checks if your email address belongs to a fully configured Azure AD work account. If that is the case, see Creating a new organization using an existing Azure AD tenant.

    If you have an Azure AD tenant registered but not fully configured, you will need to use an account not dependent upon Azure AD when signing up for Starling Platform.

  8. In the Organization Name field, enter a unique name for your organization (up to 100 characters long).

  9. In the First Name field, enter the first name of the account holder (up to 64 characters long).

  10. In the Last Name field, enter the last name of the account holder (up to 64 characters long).

  11. In the Create Password field, enter a password for your account. The password must consist of eight to sixteen characters and include three of the following items: uppercase letter, lowercase letter, number, or symbol.

  12. Enter a phone number for the account.

  13. Read through the Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, Software Transaction Agreement, and Data Processing Addendum. If you agree, select the check box associated with the requirement.

  14. After entering all your information and accepting the terms and conditions, click START to send a verification email. It could take a few minutes for the email to appear in your inbox.

  15. Once the verification email has arrived, click the Complete your registration link within the email to open the login page of Starling.
