Select User Management > Users.
A user is someone who accesses FME Flow applications, services, and other resources. A user can belong to one or more roles.
For more information about users and roles in FME Flow, see Role-Based and User-Based Access Control.
When FME Flow is installed for the first time, default user accounts are created. Note that the default Status of these accounts, except the admin account, is Disabled.
To customize the display of columns in the Users table, click the Customize Columns icon. The available columns are:
- Name: Name of the user account.
- Full Name & Email: Full name of user and email address.
- Roles : Roles assigned to the user account.
- Type: Origin of the user account.
- Status: Whether the User account is enabled or disabled. Additionally, an icon displays if the account is configured to require a password change on next login, either explicitly (see below), or because the password has expired.
- To enable or disable user accounts, check their corresponding boxes, and click Actions > Enable or Disable.
- To remove users, check their boxes, and click Actions > Remove.
- To add users to roles, select one or more users and click Actions > Add Roles. In the Add Roles dialog, click inside Role(s) to Add and select a role to which to add the user(s). Repeat to add the user(s) to more roles.
Adding and Removing Users
To add a user account, click New. Alternatively, select an existing user and click Actions > Duplicate. A dialog displays to add a new user account. This dialog is similar to Configuring an Existing User, below.
To remove a user account, select it and click Actions > Remove.
You can require all users, or selected users, to update their passwords upon next login to the Web User Interface. This action may be useful in the event of a security breach of FME Flow.
When requiring a password change from multiple users, keep in mind the following:
- You cannot require users imported from Authentication Services to update their passwords. As well, the account implementing the requirement is exempt.
- To set standards for new and updated passwords, see Password Policy.
To require password change on next login (multiple users):
- Select the users who must update their passwords.
- Select Actions > Require Password Change.
- On the Require Password Change dialog, click OK.
To configure an existing user account, click an entry in the table. The Edit User page opens. Configure the following settings, and click OK to save your changes.
The account name to use for logging in to FME Flow. This field displays only when adding a user.
Display name of the user account.
If green (slider to the right), the user account is enabled. To disable the user account, move the slider to the left.
If enabled, the user can share items they own or manage with other users or roles. To disable sharing, move the slider to the left. For more information, see Shared Access
Require Password Change on Next Login
If enabled, the password of this user account must be updated on each subsequent login. This setting is useful for user accounts that are shared among multiple persons.
(Optional) Email address of the user. This field must be set if Reset Password is enabled and you want this user to be able to reset their password.
Assigned Security Roles
Roles to which the user belongs.
To assign roles to the user, click inside the blank space of the field and select a role in the drop-down. To remove roles from the user, click the "x" beside the role name.
(Optional) Click to change the password that must be entered by the user to log in.
You can give a user access to different functions in FME Flow, regardless of assigned role. Check the box beside a function to grant access. If a user already has access through membership in a role, it is indicated with a check icon. Mouse-over an icon to see the role through which permission is granted.
Optionally, you can add permissions to match those from an existing role. Click Load Template. On the Load Template from Role dialog, select the role from which to load permissions, and click OK. This option adds any additional permissions that are not already granted. No permissions are removed. You can click Load Template multiple times to add permissions from more roles.
There are two levels of permissions:
- General: Allows a user to view the corresponding navigation link in the Web User Interface, along with select management functions, depending on the category. For example, if Access is checked beside Repositories, the user can access the Repositories page. Additionally, if Create is checked, the user can create repositories on the Repositories page.
- Item: Allows a user specific permissions on items within functional categories. To view items, click the drop-down icon of a category (v). For example, when you expand the Repositories category, you see the individual repositories on your FME Flow, along with the permissions that can be granted for each one.
