The Users page creates and deletes user accounts. This page can also assign users to User Roles and Scopes when the user account is created.
Each user must be assigned at least one role and one scope. You can assign multiple roles and scopes to a user, but only one role and one scope is active at any one time. The active role and scope are selected using the Role and Scope drop-down lists in the top-right corner of the page. You can reset the user's password, enable/disable user logons and log off users if you have access to these functions.
Note: See Master Users vs. Standard Users.
Note: Each user can change their own logon name, password and email address using System > Preferences.
Warning: To simplify management and auditing of your VSA, provide each user with their own unique logon name. Avoid using generic logons like
Creating a New User
Changing an Existing User Record
Select a user in the middle pane and click Set Password to change the password for the selected user. Passwords are case-sensitive.
Forces a selected user in the middle pane to change their logon the next time they logon.
Enable / Disable
Select a user in the middle pane and click Enable or Disable to enable or disable a selected user's ability to logon to the VSA. This does not affect users already logged onto the VSA. A Disabled column in the middle pane indicates whether a user is prevented from logging on to the VSA.
A column in the middle pane indicates whether a user is currently logged on. Select a logged on user, other than yourself, in the middle pane and click Log Off to log off that user. Users are still logged on if they close their browser without logging off. The Minutes of inactivity before a user session expires setting in System > Logon Policy determines when the inactive user sessions are automatically logged off.
Note: See VSA Logon Policies for a summary of functions affecting user logons.
