Add Users

This section provides the steps for adding users. You can add users only if you are a user with fm_super_admin role or a user with either read/write access to the FM security Management category.

Important: It is recommended to create users through GigaVUE‑FM:

■   You cannot view or manage users created in GigaVUE‑FM CLI using GigaVUE‑FM.
■   You cannot view changes made to the users in GigaVUE‑FM CLI in GigaVUE‑FM.

Note:  Monitor and operator users are not available in GigaVUE‑FM. However, if you upgrade from a previous version in which monitor/operator users have been mapped in map default user, then after upgrade:

■  In AAA: Users authenticated through the external servers will be assigned the fm_user role.
■  In LDAP: Remote group based DN entry will not be migrated.

To add users perform the following steps:

1.   On the left navigation pane, click and select Authentication > User Management > Users. The User Management page is displayed.
