Adding Local Users

Administrators can create IBM Aspera Shares user accounts that are automatically added to the local database. For DS users, see Importing DS Users. After creating local users you can add them to a local Shares group.

  1. From the Admin menu, select Accounts > Users > New.
  2. Enter the following details:
    • First Name
    • Last Name
    • Username
    • Email Address
    • Initial Login action (you can either send a login link that takes the user to the set-password page, or set a temporary password on the user's behalf).
  3. Click Create User when finished.
After creating a user, you are redirected to the user's Security settings. From this page, you can also access the user's groups, shares, and transfer settings, the user's preferences, and the user's activity logs. For more information, see Configure User Settings.
