Adding a User

You can add as many users as needed to support your use case. Follow these steps to add a new user:

  1. Log into VECTR as an admin.

  2. In the left navigation, choose AdministrationAccess Management.

  3. Click on the Users tab.

  4. Click on Create New User.

  5. Provide the following:

    • Full Name. This can be a real name or a “friendly/display name”.

    • Username. This is the sign-in name for the application. Username can contain alphanumeric, plus (+), period (.), at sign (@), underscore (_), and hyphen (-) characters.

    • Password. Provide a password of your choosing. To toggle password visibility, click the icon.

  6. (Optional) Select the Require password change option to force the user to change their password the first time they sign in.

  7. Click Next.

  8. On the Set Permissions page, you can specify how to assign permissions to the user. If you are unsure of which group or policy to assign to a user, you can still create the user now and assign them later.

    • Add to Group. Select the group(s) that you want to assign the user to. Assigning one or more groups to a user is the recommended method for permission management. Groups can have permission policies attached to them. Make sure to choose the correct group(s) for the user.

      Note

      In order for the user to access VECTR, you must at the minimum, assign them to the BasicAccess group and at least one permission to a session database.

    • Attach Policy. Alternatively, you can attach an existing policy directly to a user. This may be useful if you need to assign fine grain permission(s) for a specific user. As a best practice, we recommend that you instead attach your policies to a group and then make users members of the appropriate groups.

  9. Click Save.
