Adding a New User to a Group

Add one or more users to your group during initial configuration if you intend to have multiple users perform agent installation.

Note:

Adding a user to the Enterprise does not assign the user to any groups.

Adding a user to a group adds the user to the group and to the Enterprise.

  1. Expand the group and open Users.
  2. On the right pane, right-click the whitespace and select Add New User.

    The Add New User screen appears.

  3. Specify the following options:
    Option Description

    User Nme

    Specify the user name for the new user account (required).

    First Name

    Specify the first name for the new user account (required).

    Last Name

    Specify the last name for the new user account (required).

    EmployeeID

    Specify the employee ID for the new user account (optional).

    Email Address

    Specify the email address that applies to the user name (optional).

    Freeze

    Select whether to temporarily disable the new user account (optional). While frozen, the user is unable to log on devices.

    Group User Type

    Select the privileges of the new account.

    Options include:

    • User

    • Authenticator

    • Administrator

    Note:

    Giving a user in a group administrator or authenticator privileges only applies those privileges within that group. That user is treated as a group administrator or group authenticator. Add an administrator or authenticator in the Enterprise, outside of the group, to give that user Enterprise-level privileges.

    One Group

    Select whether the new user account is allowed to be a member of multiple group policies.

    Authentication method

    Select the method that the new user account uses to log on to Endpoint Encryption devices. Options include:

    • None

    • Fixed Password

    • Smart Card

    If the Group User Type selection is User, the default authentication method is None. If the Group User Type selection is Administrator or Authenticator, the default authentication method is Fixed Password.

  4. Click OK.

    The new user is added to the selected group and to the Enterprise. The user can now log on to Endpoint Encryption devices.
