Add new users

As a user administration UI admin user, you can add new user accounts and assign them group privileges.

Important: Until the first run wizard is completed, you must only log in as the default admin user.

To add a new user:

  1. In the main Remediate UI, click User admin on the navigation sidebar.
    The user admin login page is displayed.
  2. Log in with the user administration UI administrator username and password. For more information on setting the user administration UI admin user password, see Configuring Remediate.
  3. Select Users in the sidebar, and click Add user.
  4. On the Add user page:
    1. Enter a Username, and click Save.
      Important: Do not enter anything in the Required User Actions or Email Verified fields as it may prevent the user from logging in.
    2. On the User page for the new account, click the Credentials tab.
    3. Enter and confirm a password in the relevant fields, and click Reset password when you are done.
      Note: The password that you enter here cannot be the same as the username, must be at least 6 characters in length, and contain:
      • At least 1 upper case character.
      • At least 1 lower case character.
      • At least 1 special character.

      Note also that when changing the password, the new password must be different from previous 4 passwords employed by the user.

    4. On the Groups tab, select the groups you want to add to the new account, and click Join.
