Users

User is a system macro object defined by its specific name (login) and password. Using these login and password users can enter one of Wialon interfaces where they can control their units (end users) or manage the system itself (users-managers).

A user has access rights to interact with other system objects (units, other users, resources, etc.). These rights are assigned by a system manager. Besides, a user can be a creator of these objects, which also affects right hierarchy. Manager's duty is to properly build this hierarchy.

Users as system objects also have some specific applications in Wialon main interface that is described below (send SMS, control user activity, etc.).

Working with Users

Working with users is possible both in CMS Manager and in the main interface. In CMS Manager, open the 'Users' tab in the navigation panel on the left of the window.

There is a button to create a new user, a filter to search existent users, and a button (optional) to send informational notices to your users.

In the table of results, you can see user's name, creator, account, billing plan, date and time of a last visit in the system, buttons to delete users and login as them. Availability of buttons and information depends on your access rights.

Standard operations described below (such as create, view, edit, copy) can be applied to users in the same way as to other system objects. However, the following particularities should be taken into consideration:

  • Users cannot be as easily deleted as other system objects. Actually, only users who are not creators of any other system objects can be deleted. To delete a user, press the red delete button against their name and confirm your intentions (a dash is displayed instead of the button if you have no rights for deletion). If you are trying to delete a user who is a creator of any items in the system, you will get a alert which cites all those objects, and they should be deleted prior to their creator. Nevertheless, automatic deletion of all subordinated items together with their creator is still possible — through deleting an account they belong to.

Straightaway from the table, you can login to the system as another user (access flag 'Act as given user' is required). To do this, use buttons in the right column of the table. If connected as different user, both user names are displayed on the top panel. To return to the main user, click on their name in the top panel (before brackets, in bold).
