Story Time: An Excerpt from the Janrain Technical Library

Creating a new agent is a simple process (assuming that you don’t have to worry about the permission differences between the Console and the Dashboard). To create an agent, enter the prospective agent’s email address, assign an agent role, and then click a button. That’s pretty much all you have to do.

Before we take a more detailed look at this process, however, we should mention that agents are not required to have user accounts on your web site. When an agent registers with your site he or she registers as an agent only; a regular user account (and a regular user profile) is not created for the new agent. In more concrete terms, that means you’ll see the user listed on the Manage Agents page but not on the Manage Profiles page.

Oh, and agents do not have to have accounts with specific domains or with specific email providers. Any user with a valid email address can be assigned an agent role.
