  3. Enter the user's information, select a role, then click Save.

    LDAP user information is auto-populated from the client's LDAP account as soon as you start to enter the name, email, or username of the LDAP user.

    Note

    Usernames are case-sensitive.

    By selecting “Override idle timeout settings...”, an administrator can override the Idle User Timeout value that is set in the Password Policy.

Verifying the New Local or LDAP User

  1. Click the arrow where the current logged-in username is displayed and select Sign Out (from the drop-down menu) to log out of the Administrator account.

    You are returned to the login page.

  2. Use the newly created username and password for the account that you just created.

    You are now logged in as the new user.
