About your user cap

The number of Cloud Identity users you can create is governed by your user cap. Your user cap is the total number of users you can create across all of your Google Cloud services. It varies based on the types of Google Cloud services you are subscribed to. If you purchase additional licenses for paid Google Cloud services, such as G Suite, your user cap automatically increases.

When you sign up for a Cloud Identity subscription, your user cap increases by 50. Therefore, you can create at least 50 Cloud Identity users.
