The goal of this how-to is to explain how you can manage your application's users with the Users management application.
Fill in the credentials of an administrator user and press the 'Login' button.
And you're in! Welcome to the Users management console.
Select the 'Users' tab and click on 'Create new User';
Fill in the user data as depicted;
Press the 'Save' button, a success feedback message should be displayed;
And you're done! This user is ready to login in any application.
Users can be assigned with a Role to be granted access to specific screens. In addition you'll also be able to use Roles to enable/disable access to other application elements like buttons, containers, etc. or to condition your application's logic.
Roles are defined at development time in Service Studio and are automatically made available in the Users application.
To create a Role, go to Service Studio and under Logic, right click the roles folder and pick 'Add Role'. You'll have to publish your application, for the role to be made available in the Users application.
To assign a Role to a user, you'll need to access the Users application at "http://<SERVERNAME>/Users" (where <SERVERNAME> is the host name of the server you're working on):
You may need to group users to simplify mangement of large sets of users. You can do this by Using Groups to aggregate users or roles:
Make sure the Platform Server is inside the Active Directory Domain you want to your users to authenticate with.
Type the following URL in your web browser: "http://<SERVERNAME>/Users" where <SERVERNAME> is the host name of the server you're working on. The login page should be displayed
Click the 'Configure Authentication' link on the right
Fill in the form as depicted below and click 'Save'
And you're done!
