User authentication via the Workbench for built-in authentication

This information only applies if built-in authentication is being used. If LDAP or AD is being used, the menus described here will be disabled.

Users and groups can be managed through the Workbench by logging into the CLC Server as an administrative user and then going to the Workbench menu:

        File | Manage Server Users and Groups

This will display the dialog shown in figure 4.7.

Click on the Add (Image add_plus) button to create a new user. Enter the name of the user and enter a password. You will be asked to re-type the password. If you wish to change the password at a later time, select the user in the list and click Change password (Image password).

To delete a user, select the user in the list and click Delete (Image delete_minus).

Access rights are granted to groups, not users, so a user has to be a member of one or more groups to get access to the data location.

Adding and removing groups is done in the Groups tab (see figure 4.8).

To create a new group, click the Add (Image add_plus) button and enter the name of the group. To delete a group, select the group in the list and click the Delete (Image delete_minus) button.

When a new group is created, it is empty. To assign users to a group, click on the Membership tab. In the Selected group box, you can choose among all the groups that have been created. When you select a group, you will see its members in the list below (see figure 4.9). To the left you see a list of all users.
