The user stores of Carbon products can be configured to operate in read/write mode, in which it reads data and also writes data to the user store, and read-only mode, in which it does not modify any data. Carbon maintains roles and permissions in the Carbon database, but it can read users and roles from the configured user store.

titleAbout read/write and read only mode

If the user store is operating in "Read/Write" mode, the user can:

  • Add, modify, or remove user accounts
  • Reset user passwords
  • Manage user roles
  • Build "import users" from other User Stores

If the user store is operating in "Read Only" mode, the user can:

  • View user accounts

In addition to the primary user store, you can configure additional, secondary user stores.
