User Management ⭐
Version 2.3 of the Management Center introduces the new User Management feature. With this you can configure different users for the Management Center and assign roles like "admin", "editor" and "viewer" to restrict or give access to specific features.
First navigate to the user management by selecting the "User Management" menu entry from the left main menu.
Then click on the Button "New User", which will open the following page:
Fill out the form and click on "Save" to create the new user.
The new user should show up in the overview list:
First go to the detail view of the user that you want to edit.
In this view, click on the "Edit" button to activate the edit mode. After that you can edit the password of the user and add or remove roles. To apply the changes to the user click the "Save" button.
First go to the overview page of all users. Then in order to delete a user click on the trash icon next to the user that you want to delete. Confirm the following confirmation dialog and the user will be deleted from the system.
Available user roles
Currently the following user roles are available:
- Admin: has full rights to the Management Center, e.g., to access the user management
- Editor: has editing rights, on connected broker for the dynamic security and is able to access the dashboard and "topic tree" page.
- Viewer: has limited rights, and can only access the dashboard and "topic tree" page
The user management does not list the default user, set within the docker-compose file. This user grants access to the management center, when no user is set up or passwords are forgotten.
To adjust the default user, edit the docker-compose file of your local installation,
and restart the MMC.
