New User Welcome Email

When I am creating a new user, is there a way to
1) Send him a welcome email through splunk?
2) Force him to change his password the first time he logs in (much list the admin user must do on the initial install)?

I recently created 20 users and had to email each of them with their user name and a link to our splunk install. Then i had to strongly suggest they change the password I set for them, but I did not see a way to enforce that.

Yes, you can use LDAP with Splunk Cloud.

Thank you, does that go for "Splunk Cloud" as well?
