Administrative Users and Roles

There can be one or more admin users and access rights for each admin user can be controlled using Roles. It is the role that defines what access rights the admin users have. Admin users are broadly classified into Super admin with full access and delegated admin with restrictive access.

Only super admin user can have access to this page for managing users and roles.

Username is a mandatory field and the value is unique across the system. During user creation, select a role that is appropriate and click on Create User. A password can be set to user after a user is created and from the user list page. In case if Admin Console is configured to use external IDP, then no need to set password to user and setting a password will not have any impact or used.

User can be edited at later stage to update role or other fields. Please note that, username cannot be changed once created. To change the username, user have to be deleted and recreated.

User can be disabled and by doing so, user will not be able to login to system.
