Add a User

Before You Begin

For efficient creation and management of users:

  1. Decide on the approach to use for user name, user ID, and password details.

    • Name: For example, decide on the order of first and last names (John Smith or Smith, John).

    • User ID: Determine what you will use for user IDs. For example, if your organization has employee IDs, it may be most logical to use those IDs. A maximum of 60 characters can be used.

    • Password: Determine a password approach that will provide appropriate log-in security for your organization. See Determine password requirements.

  2. No other character limitations or particular formats exist for user information.

    Click the Next button.

  8. In the Group Assignments step, select the group(s) that the new user should be assigned to, and click Next.
