The process of adding, removing and updating users is accomplished via the User Administration manager. If a user has administration privileges, the User Administration manager can be launched by selecting User Administration from the Managers menu. User accounts are created and modified through the user editor or Multiple User editor.
BSI uses role-based security to assign privileges to users. Roles are defined with specific permissions in the Roles manager (See Administration & Security > Security > Roles). Once defined, a role can then be assigned to a user from the User Administration manager. Multiple roles can be assigned to one user, granting that user all permissions defined in any assigned role.
Non-administrators do not have access to the User Administration manager. They can modify only their own information in the User editor by selecting User Profile from the Tools menu.
User accounts include a substantial set of preferences which may be used to default settings, receive notification, or otherwise streamline the user experience. User Configuration templates may be created to assign a standard configuration of preferences to user accounts.
