29. General Settings » User Management

In Configuration » General Settings » User Management, you can add, modify and delete Console user accounts.

Each Console user must be assigned to one role (access level):

Administrator – Has full privileges and is allowed to manage other user accounts
Operator – Can change any configuration but is not authorized to modify other user accounts, and has no access to General Settings » License Manager
Guest – Has read-only access to Console, without access to any configuration. Can have a granular, permission-based access to specific reports, dashboards, Sensors, IP groups, tools, etc.

To add a Console account, press [Add User] and select a proper role. You can modify an account by double-clicking it, or by selecting it and by pressing the [Modify User] button.


Mandatory parameters:

Enabled – Enables or disables the selected account
Authentication – The following authentication options are available:
Local Password – The user will be authenticated with the password entered in the Password field. Only the hash is stored in the database, so it’s not possible to decrypt the password

Landing Tab – Shows the tab that opens immediately after logging in. The list is dynamic and expands as you add Sensors, dashboards, IP groups, etc.
