Users are consumers who interact with your enterprise's applications, databases or any other systems. These users can be persons, devices or applications/programs within or outside of the enterprise's network. Since these users interact with internal systems and access data, the need to define which user is allowed to do what is critical. This is called user management.
Follow the steps below to create users and assign them to roles via the admin console. Also, if you want to authenticate users via e-mail, social media, multiple user store attributes, see Maintaining Logins and passwords.
Log on to the Management Console and select Users and Roles from the Configure menu.
Click Users in the User Management window that opens.
The Users link is only visible to admins.
Click Add New User.
The Add User page opens. Provide the username and password and click Next.
Tip: The Domain drop-down list contains all user stores configured in the system. By default, you only have the PRIMARY user store. To configure secondary user stores, see Configuring Secondary User Stores.
Select the roles you want to assign to the user. In this example, we assign the
creatorrole defined in the previous section.
Click Finish to complete. The new use appears in the Users list.
From here, you can change the user's password, assign different roles or delete it.
