When you add a new user, the only mandatory field is the User ID. All other fields are optional. Click OK to save the data.

The elements of the dialog are explained in detail below:

       User ID:

This is the only mandatory field. The user ID can be changed at any time, with the only restriction that it must not be identical with another user ID in the given client. (Note that you need to inform the user about any change of the user ID, if the user has used the old user ID before.)


The status can be "Active" or "Not active". If the status is "Not active", requests by this user will not be processed, anymore.


By setting the validity you can limit the time in which the client is active. Any client requests that are not in the limits of the dates set, will be rejected.
