Edit/Copy User Dialog Box

The Edit/Copy User dialog box allows you to change or copy the details from the selected user account.

NOTE  When you copy a user, only the role assignments for the current product are copied to the new user. Role assignments for other products are not copied.

NOTE  If you selected multiple users to edit, the values appear as <Leave Unchanged>. You can leave these fields as-is, or specify values to apply across users.
