Users management


Initially, logging in to the CLI and the web admin interface is available for the administrator only. The administrator can manage all parameters himself or add other users and give them appropriate permissions to perform these operations.

A user has the following fields:

  • username
  • password

A user can own applications created in the system. Also, a user has the active flag. With this flag, ability of that user to connect to the console can be put on hold if necessary.
