Add User

The New user button in the toolbar of the Users area allows you to create new users. By clicking the corresponding button, the Add user dialog box will open. You will find the following tabs here:

 

General

The General tab provides following options:

 

 

Account

 

Settings can be adjusted as follows in the Account tab:

 

Log on to the server: You can define here if a new user should use their Windows NT credentials to log in on the server or if you would like to determine a user name and password for them yourself.

 

Account options

 

Account deactivated: If this box is checked, the user's account has been locked temporarily. This may occur if a user has reached the maximum failed login attempts, for example. Uncheck the box to activate the account again and thus enable a user to access and log on on the server again.

 

User may not change password: Check this box if you do not want to allow users to change their password for login on the Enterprise Server.

 

User must change password at next logon: Check this box if you want users to be forced to change their password for login on the Enterprise Server next time they want to login.

 

2-Factor Authentication deactivated: Check this box if you want to deactivate 2-Factor Authentication for one or several special users. Thus, you can activate 2-Factor Authentication for login on the server in general for all users but still deactivate it for special users, if and when necessary.

 

Roles

In this tab you can assign different server roles to individual users additionally. Role based access to the Server Manager can be guaranteed this way. The following roles are available:

 

 

 

Member of

You can determine here, if a selected user should be member of any groups and, if so, also decide which groups he should be a member of.

 

Add group: Click this button to add a user to a new group.

Delete: Select this option to remove a user from a group.

 

Advanced

The Advanced tab is divided into two sections:

 

 

WebSockets port for browser add-ons:

The administrator can determine the custom distribution of port numbers for the users' add-on in the Server Manager.

Different options are available here:

 

  1. Use the default port number (recommended)
  2. Auto-generate unique port number
  3. Use custom port number

 

If the administrator determines the default port number of a user in the Server Manager, then each user only needs to adjust the port number in the client accordingly.

 

IP address verification:

You can assign a fixed IP address to a user here, so that every connection attempt of this user with another IP address will be rejected. This can increase security, but it also requires using static IP addresses.  

 

NOTE: The addresses 'localhost' and '127.0.0.1' are always allowed, so that the administrator is able to adjust wrong settings on the server.
