Create Users

  • Riaz Ahmed


After creating groups, you add users to them, as shown in Figure 8-1 later in this chapter. You input a user ID for each new user, but when you call up an existing user’s record for modification, this value is displayed as read-only text. You also allocate a default company to each new user to work in. This allocation is helpful in restricting a user to handling the accounts of a specific company. You might notice from Figure 8-1 that besides assigning the Admins group, you also specify whether the user is an administrator. This is because you have a column (Admin) in the GL_USERS table that explicitly assigns administrative rights to those users marked as administrators, irrespective of the group to which they belong. This explicit marking is necessary in some cases to quickly assess whether a user is an administrator. You’ll see an instance of this in the Chapter  9.
