  5. Click Confirm on the confirmation window.

Adding existing account users

There might be times when you want to invite a user who already has a Fastly account to your account. To add an existing user, follow the steps below:

  1. Have the existing user you're inviting cancel their account so you can invite them to yours. We tie a user's email address to the creation of an account. Canceling that account allows the email address to be reused.
  2. Log in to the Fastly application.
  3. Re-invite the user to your account.
