About User Accounts

Each user in the system must have an account that at a minimum includes a login ID, name, and product-access level. Typically, each user account is assigned roles and group membership, which provides their privilege set and notification subscriptions.

SBM offers several mechanisms for adding user accounts to your system. You can:

On-demand customers can add as many users as their account allows. Once the limit is reached, an error message appears and no more users can be allocated until this limit is increased.

On-premise customers who use seat licenses can add users until the number of seats available is exceeded for a specific product-access type. Once you reach this number, you can add users to the system, but you cannot grant product access to them until you add more seats.

Once user accounts are established, use roles or groups to effectively manage privilege sets, notification subscriptions, and more. For details, refer to About User Management.
