Creating a new user on ARIS 9

You can create new users on ARIS 9 using the User Management Console (UMC). To access the UMC, go to your server name:port/umc in any browser. You should always be able to access the um on the server by using http://localhost(:port)/umc, you only need to include the port if you did not use the default port 80.

Once there you can go to the user administration tab. On this tab you can create, edit and remove users and user groups from the UMC.

After the user has been created, you can edit his details, assign the user to user groups, assign function and license privileges, see attributes and active sessions of this user.

I prefer using user groups to define the access for multiple users, but it is not a requirement for users to belong to a user group. The last important thing to do to enable the user to log onto the system is to provide him with a license. Under the privileges tab, you will find two more sub-tabs called Function privileges and License privileges. Use the License privileges section to assign the applicable license to the user.

Here you can choose from licenses that were loaded onto the server during installation or loaded after. If you do not see your license you will need to load the licenses on the server. This will be discussed at a later stage.
You assign a license to the user by clicking on the checkboxes in the “Granted” column next to the relevant license you would like to assign. Once you have made the selection, the changes have already been saved and you can exit back to the user list or exit the UMC.

The last step you will need to do is to assign access privileges, the way to go about that is more familiar, you open an administration tab and log onto the target database. Under the Users section you will find that all users on the UMC will be listed.

Here you can go into the user’s properties and assign the required access privileges for the user. You can select a higher level group (folder), select the privileges required. You can also assign the same access to all the sub-groups by clicking on the “Pass on privileges” button.

Other settings that can be changed at this point are the allowed Method filter, Function privileges and User group association.

I hope these instructions are as easy as it is to create new users.
