ProcedureTo Add a User

  1. Select the configuration.

    Select the configuration from the configuration list. Click Configurations tab to get the list.

  2. Click Access Control > Users tab.

  3. Click New button.

  4. Add User Information.

    Enter the user id and password. Optionally enter the group which the user belongs to. The user ID must be unique. In case of LDAP based authentication DB, the Administration Server ensures that the user ID is unique by searching the entire directory from the search base (base DN) down to see if the user ID is in use. Be aware, however, that if you use the Directory Server ldapmodify command line utility (if available) to create a user, that it does not ensure unique user IDs.

    Note –

    Using CLI

    For creating a user through CLI, execute the following command.

    wadm> create-user --user=admin --password-file=admin.pwd --host=serverhost 
    --port=8989 --config=config1 --authdb=KEYFILE1 --full-name=keyfile-config1-u1 

    See CLI Reference, create-user(1).
