Adding User Definitions

Composer account administrators, a Composer supervisor, and account users who are assigned to a group with user management privileges can add user definitions to a Composer account.

When Logged In as a Supervisor

Supervisors can add new users to Composer, with the following caveats:

  • The user is not assigned to any groups. Supervisors cannot specify or change a user's group assignments. Only an administrator of the account or a user who has been assigned to an account group with user management privileges can assign groups to users in the account.

  • When a supervisor creates a new user, the Require password change toggle on the Info tab is always on (set to Yes) and cannot be altered. New users created by a supervisor are required to change their password when they first log into Composer.

  • After a new user has been created, supervisors cannot reset or change the user password. Only administrators or a users who have been assigned to a group with user management privileges can reset or change user passwords.

To add a user definition when logged in as a supervisor:

  1. Log into Composer as a supervisor. The Manage Users page appears, listing all of the user definitions in the Composer instance. If you move from this page, you can always access it by selecting Users on the supervisor menu ().

  2. Select . The user definition editor appears on the right side of the page.

  3. On the Info tab, supply values for the user login name, full name, email, and initial password. See Specifying General User Definition Information.

  4. Select to save the new user definition. If you do not save the new definition, you cannot access the Account(s) and Regional Settings tabs for a new user definition.

  5. On the Account(s) tab, assign the user to one or more Composer accounts and identify the user's primary account. See Assigning and Removing Users in Composer Accounts.

  6. On the Regional Settings tab, select a regional language for the user definition. See Specifying User Locale.
