There are two types of JumpSeat Users: JumpSeat Administrative Users and JumpSeat End Users.
JumpSeat identifies and provisions Administrative Users and End Users of JumpSeat in TWO methods:
1. By their email address
2. By their unique identifier based on an application hosted by yourinstance.jumpseat.io*
NOTE: * This requires ID mapping in the Application Configuration area. This configuration is performed by a JumpSeat Configuration specialist.
JumpSeat Administrative Users have dedicated logins to the JumpSeat instance (yourinstance.jumpseat.io) to facilitate administration and guide authoring.
Therefore, the username of a JumpSeat Administrative User is the user’s email address. This email address appears in the Email field in the User Table.
Data in this field should not be changed, UNLESS the JumpSeat user’s Username for access to JumpSeat changes.
