User Management

Description

The Users Management allows to create and manage users and their privileges. You can set the default privileges on the user type in Data Source Settings (System Settings). Remote Desktop Manager offers advanced user rights management that allows for restricting access to entries. Please note that availability of some features depends on the active data source.

This feature requires an Advanced Data Source.

A user can be created using default security (specify the password) or Integrated Security. Not all Advanced Data Sources support the use of Integrated Security.

In order to create users and assign rights, you must be administrator of not only Remote Desktop Manager, but also of the underlying database.

Manage Users

To create, edit, delete, rename or otherwise manage users as a whole, simply use the buttons in the toolbar.
