How to: Add a User

When you create a User, you are giving them access to Fuse. In this guide you will learn how to:

  1. Add a New User
  2. Set a password
  3. Add a Group

Please note that you will need administration rights to manage Users in order to complete this guide. If you come across any unfamiliar terms in this guide, please use the Glossary of Terms to learn more.

1 – Add a New User

Start by opening the menu and selecting Configuration. Next, select Security and then Users. You will then be at the list of Users registered with the system.

To begin adding your new User, click the button in the bottom right corner of the page with the + icon. This will take you to the User creation page. You will need to fill out the following information in the Settings section:

  • Display Name – The Display Name is the name of the user. Put the full name of the User in this field. Note: This is not the name the User logs into the system with.
  • Email – The User’s email address is used to send notifications and reset a forgotten password.
  • Use email as Username – This option is set by default and indicates the email address is also used as the Username.
  • Username – This is the name that the user will log into the system with. You can set this to a specific value by unchecking the Use email as Username option.

After you have filled out the Settings for the user, click the save button in the lower right corner of the page.

2 – Set a Password

After saving the User, you can set their password.  Give the user a temporary password by clicking the Set Password button.  We recommend setting the Force Reset option. This will ensure the User sets their own password when logging in for the first time.

3 – Add a Group

Groups are a collection of users that perform similar tasks in the system.  If you already have a group for this User, click on the Groups tab.  The Groups tab lists the Groups assigned to the User.  To add a group, click the button in the lower right corner with the + icon.  Choose the Group from the list you wish to add and click OK.

Note: We reccomend adding users to Groups instead of Roles.

Conclusion

Now that you have completed this guide, you should have the knowledge to add new Users.  As mentioned above, we recommend a traditional approach to Users, Groups, and Roles.  Read our guide on the User, Group, Role structure to learn more.  If you had any difficulty using this guide, please contact our support team.
