Adding a User through Management Console

This procedure describes how to create a Spectrum™ Technology Platform user account and assign a role to the account.

To add a user account and assign a role to it:
  1. Open Management Console.
  2. Go to System > Security.
  3. Click the Add button .
  4. Leave the Enabled switch set to On if you want this user account to be available for use.
  5. Enter the user name in the User name field.
    Note: User names can only contain ASCII characters. User names are case sensitive.
  6. Enter the user's email address in the Email address field. The email address is used by some modules to send notifications to users.
  7. Enter a description of the user in the Description field.
  8. Enter and confirm the user's password.
  9. Select the roles you want to give to this user.

    You may create your own roles or use one of the default roles. The default roles are:

    This role has full access to all parts of the system.
    This role is for users that create dataflows and process flows in Enterprise Designer. It provides the ability to design and run dataflows.
    This role is for users who need to process data through Spectrum™ Technology Platform but do not need to create or modify dataflows. It allows the user to access services through web services and the API, and to run jobs.
    This is the default role. It provides no access to the system. Users who have this role will only gain access to the system if you grant permission through secured entity overrides.

    For information about creating roles, see Creating a Role in Management Console.
