5.2 User Permission Setup

Administration and Customization

The Permissions window serves as a centralized hub for managing user-groups and user-accounts. Permissions are assigned to user-groups, and each user inherits permissions from the group they are assigned to. Any number of user-groups can be defined and permissions are set custom for each user-group. Any number of users can be assigned to a single user-group. By default there are one user-group, the sysadmin user-group. The default user Administrator belongs to this user group. The default password for the Administrator user is: admin. It is recommended to change the Administrator password to a unique password, when setting up the software for the first time. At least one user must be assigned as a sysadmin user. The users in the sysadmin group are the only users that are allowed to access the Permissions window.
