Adding Users

Follow the instructions given below to create a new User account in CDP.

Note
Super-Users always have the ability to add new Users into the system. A Normal User may be able to add new Users if the corresponding option is checked for the User.

1. Click on "Users" in the Main Menu.

Advanced Edition Enterprise Edition

2. In the "Users" menu, click on "Create New User."

Note
Normal Users may be able to create new Users. In such cases, the "New User" button is disabled. The ability to create Users is defined and can be changed by a User's Administrator.

3. The "Create New User" window will open.

4. Define the new User properties in this window:

Tip
While creating and editing other Users, you can set their languages as "Japanese" or "Spanish," but leave "English" as your own default language.
Note
Choice of a language is based on which messages_*.properties files are installed. This may be set/overridden on a User-by-User basis. When the language is changed, the GUI must refresh the text to the selected language immediately. If no language is chosen, English will be the default. If a User-chosen or stored language pack is not available, it will default to CDP Server default, which in turn defaults to English.

5. Click on "Create" to add a new User with defined properties.

6. You will then be informed as to whether the User was successfully created. Click "OK" in the displayed dialog.
