Adding a user

There are two ways to add users. You can import them from a directory service such as Microsoft Active Directory or Novell eDirectory. The other way to add users is one at a time from the Users tab of the Manage Users module.

To add a user

  1. From the top-level navigation, open the Admin module.
  2. Select Manage Users.
  3. Select the Security tab.
  4. Select the Users tab.
  5. Click New New.
  6. Under User Properties, enter the first and last name for the user, their user name and their email address.
  7. Leave the Distinguished Name field empty. If your organization is using a directory service to create user accounts, such as Microsoft Active Directory or Novell eDirectory, this field will contain the user's Lightweight Directory Access (LDAP) distinguished name. For example: cn=grant mclennan,ou=australia,dc=gobetweens,dc=com.
  8. From the Authentication Provider drop-down, select the provider that will be used when this user logs on. In Password, type the password for the user. Passwords are case-sensitive and must be at least four characters long; blank passwords are not allowed. You do not need to enter a password if your organization is using a directory service.
  9. Select Active to make this user available; only active users can access the application and/or be available for selection.
  10. Select Send Email Notifications to allow the user to receive notifications by email.
  11. Under Global/Administrative Roles, select the security roles to which you want to assign this user.
  12. Under Licenses, select the licenses to which this user is assigned. All users must have a license assigned to them.
  13. Click Save Save.
