The Users section of the IDERA Dashboard Administration view allows you to add users and groups, grant access to other team members or groups, and manage roles. For more information about user roles, see Understanding user roles. Users with administrative privileges are divided into two groups:

  • Dashboard Administrator. Allows the user to manage access over Dashboard functions as well as individual product functions.
  • Product Administrator. Allows the user to grant access to individual products for which they have administrative rights.

Users must be existing Active Directory users. Newly-added users must use their Windows user account and password to log in to your IDERA products.

To access user management in IDERA Dashboard, either select Manage Users from the Administration menu or click Manage Users on the Administration view of IDERA Dashboard.
