In this next post tutorial, I'll be walking through managing and creating user accounts.
00:06
Many companies have security groups whose responsibilities are passed into manageable subsidiaries or divisions.
00:12
These divisions may have their own security subgroups or sites within. Next post
00:16
exposes role based access controls a lot global administrators to create other uses and limit their access to these sites or groups in which they belong.
00:27
To create a user, we're gonna go to the administration tab and right along the top you'll see uses and click on Create. This will bring you to the news of configuration.
00:35
Everything here is pretty straightforward and, just as you would expect,
00:39
just give you his name
00:40
and authentication methods. Next. If you have set up in an external authentication methods such a Zelda Parker Bro's, they'll be listed here in this drop down. Otherwise next. Most users just default. Local account built into next pose
00:54
next described, and all the fields in red are required, so make sure you fill those in.
00:59
I don't give a password
01:02
later on. You can always enable or disabling account by editing it
01:07
once you've got all the set up good and quick on next
01:08
Hey, you'll select the role in permissions for the user.
01:11
Next was comes with five built in roles ranging from global administrating who has access to everything all the way down to the user,
01:19
who only has view access to any sights and asset groups that they're assigned to.
01:23
None of the built in roles fit where you're looking for. You can always choose custom.
01:26
You select your own permissions for the user.
01:33
I can click on next, and this is what we'll choose. What we want. This use it have access to
01:37
you could give them access to all sites. Or you can create a custom list of sites that you want them have access.
01:42
It's click on Save
01:44
Next. We'll just do the same thing with any asset groups that want to give them.
01:49
Once you've done this good and quick on next
01:52
and now your user has been created.
01:56
Clicking on manage will give you a listing of all uses. Here you can edit anyone that you like our delete them.
02:01
It tried to leading user that has reports assigned to them. Next was lousy. Thio easily re signed these items to another user.
02:15
Next time was gonna log out
02:16
and log back in is the user is created.
02:23
As you can see right away,
02:24
there is no administration tab since this is ah, custom user, and I just gave them access to these two sides
02:31
as well as this one asset group.
02:35
This uses still has access to click around and give you all the information on all the devices within the site.
02:40
That's about it for creating uses. If you have any questions, you can go ahead and click on the support link in the upper right hand corner.
