Console user is a Console login account with customizable access permissions. Except for
administrator accounts, Console user permissions are managed through group assignment. A
Console user inherits permissions from its groups.
Note: Console users are not directly
related to the login account to a node.
Go to Accounts > Users and click New
Enter a login username, the user's first and last name and an email address.
Set the user's time zone.
Important: All activity on the Console is dated according to the
user's time zone.
Select Set password to create a password for the user account. If
you do not set a password, Console generates a temporary password for the
account and emails the password to the user.
You can change password requirements in the Console Password Options section. Go to
Configuration > Defaults
For more information on
password requirements, see Configuring Console Defaults
Disable user login by clearing Active (allow user to login).
If you wish to finish setting permissions for the user account before allowing the user to
log in, disable the account by clearing Active (allow user to
login). To re-enable the account, return to these settings and
select Active (allow user to login). User login is
enabled by default.
Disable reporting features for the user by clearing Reports
When finished, click Create.
The system sends an account creation notification email to the
designated email with the account's username and password. If you do not set a
password, Console generates a temporary password for the account and include
that in the email.
The following step is only applicable when creating non-admin users. All admin users
have full permissions to all groups and transfer paths. After creating a non-admin
user, Console redirects you to the user permissions page.
Assign the user to Console groups.
Assign the user to groups with the desired transfer-path permissions. To assign the user
to a group, select a group from the drop-down menu and click
Add. You can review the Console user's transfer
permissions in a table listing all transfer paths accessible by this user

the list of all Console users.
