Setting up user accounts

If the Auto Create option was enabled in the Xtraction Settings utility during installation, an account is created automatically the first time any user accesses Xtraction. The Xtraction administrator also has the ability to manually set up and edit user accounts after installation. The user settings you can edit include privileges, group participation, variables, and passwords.

To display the user list

1.At bottom of the application window, click the Administration > User Administration link.

2.Click the User Administration tab to display the user list.

At the top of the dialog, you can use the Search box to search for specific users. Type a text string, then press Enter to refresh the list and display any users that match your text entry. You can also limit the display to Active users only by selecting the Active only option.

To temporarily suppress a user’s access privileges to Xtraction, right-click a name in the user list and select Make inactive.

Creating or editing user accounts

Once a user account is created, you can't delete it, nor can you change a user's username from the user interface. You can, however, right-click a name and select Make inactive to temporarily suppress a user's access privileges to Xtraction.

Allowing users view-only access
If your organization purchased an Enterprise Server license, you can set up an unlimited number of users (known as "viewers") with view-only access to Xtraction dashboards. Viewers can view and interact with existing dashboards without taking up a user license. Users are considered viewers only if they are NOT assigned a user role. Once a user has an assigned role, each Xtraction session that they open in a browser will use an available license.

Changing the Local authentication password and authentication method

If Local authentication is used, users can change their own Xtraction credentials by clicking the Profile > Change Password link at the bottom of the page. Note that for Local authentication, usernames are not case sensitive but passwords are.

If users are using Local authentication, but you want to enable Windows authentication for them as well, you can do so from Xtraction.
