A user was initially specified and created during the deployment process. As with any new user, you were required to change your password as you signed in for the first time. The
Manage Users section of the console is to extend the management of user(s) beyond that initial setup. From the Manage Users page you can create additional users (assuming your user is an
Admin), delete users and modify users in the form of assigning them to groups and changing their roles.
Managing users involves creating, modifying, deleting or activating/deactivating their accounts. At the time of creation you will also assign them one or multiple groups to belong to. You can change the group assignment later as well.
You may not be using Groups to organize your accounts. There is always one group created by default, the Primary group. In this situation you would specify Primary as the group value.
As seen below you are presented a simple page with the list of existing users. Directly after install you will only have one user in the list that was created during deployment. You can add more users as desired from this page and they will be reflected here as well.
Creating a new account is a simple process. Click the
Create User button.
User Name, a valid
Email Address, the
User Access Level and a
Group to belong to. An email will be sent to the specified email address with a login URL and
Temporary Password. There are two
User Access Levels:
User. The difference being
Admin has access to all screens and configuration capabilities, while the
User will not be able to create additional users or modify any of the configuration.
User account types can see all dashboards and buckets and can enable / disable buckets.
After creating the new user, they will be in a
pending state until they have logged in and reset their password. They have 7 days to complete this with the password that was sent to them. After that time period, they can just initiate a password reset to finish off the process.
To modify an existing user, select the action menu () on the particular user's row. Now select the appropriate action you'd like to take: Change Groups, Change Role or Disable User. If the user has already been disabled you will be given an option to delete the user.
Change Role pops open the following:
Change Groups pops open the following:
To change your own password, you will select the user icon in the upper right corner of the console and select
Change Password from the menu.
Just as you did when you first logged into the console, you need to provide your current password and then what you'd like for your new password. Be sure to follow the rules as described at the bottom of the page.
You cannot reset another user's password from the console. Have the user leverage the
Forgot Password link at the login screen.
To sign out of the console, you will select the user icon in the upper right corner of the console and select
Sign Out from the menu.
