Managing users on the SES Evolution administration console

Users access the console with their Microsoft Windows accounts which must be on the same Active Directory domain as the backend component. If this is not the case, then a relationship of trust must be established between the domains.

By default, only the super administrator specified during installation can log in to the administration console. This administrator can then create other users who will also be able to log in.

If you rename the Windows account of this super administrator, make sure that you have created a user beforehand with the new name in the SES Evolution administration console. Otherwise you will not be able to log in to the console. For further information, refer to the section Adding users on the administration console.

Each user is assigned a role that defines the user’s profile and restricts the features available in the administration console. Three roles are available by default: Audit, Helpdesk and Administration. New roles can also be created and customized.

Multiple users can connect simultaneously to consoles that manage the same pool.
