Managing User Accounts

A user account is required to log in to the Avalanche Console. User accounts allow you to define who can access components and perform tasks. Each user is assigned to a home location, which defines the locations the user has authority to manage.

There are two types of accounts: Administrator and Normal. An Administrator account can access and modify all the configurations in Avalanche associated with its home location or any sub-locations. A Normal account is assigned to specific locations or profiles and can only view or make changes in its assigned areas.

Note:   Avalanche is installed with a default Administrator account amcadmin with the password admin. Wavelink recommends you create a new password for this account once you log in.

When a Normal account is created, assign permissions to that account. These permissions can apply to all profiles of a type (for example, all alert profiles), to specific tools (for example, Remote Control), or location management and synchronization. You can also assign permissions on a profile-by-profile basis by authorizing the user for individual profiles.

As an alternative to assigning permissions to each Normal account, you can assign permissions to a user group. Each Normal account that is part of the user group will have the permissions which are assigned to the group. If a user is removed from the group, he will no longer have the associated permissions. A Normal account can belong to more than one user group at a time.
