While creating users in the gooddata cloud for our domain, learned that user id has to be in an email format only.
Is there any specific reason for this format?
For ldap users there is a possibility that we might not have email format for the user login as a mandatory process. Please suggest if there is any other way to create users with out email format.

If you are working directly on the platform, then yes the email is mandatory. It is possible to generate a dummy email for the user in some unique format e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org. You can use this for just logging in the users to GoodData using SSO.
If you are working with GoodData.CN, it depends on (OIDC) Identity Provider you would use.
