Users Registration


Users can only be added by someone with Instance admin role:

  1. Go to User Manager, under Utilities.
  2. Select Create User from the Operations drop down. 
  3. Provide a username and, if using file-based authentication, a password. The password can later be changed by the user.


User roles


When a user is registered in this way, a Space (folder) with the name of the user is automatically created under the Lab Notebook main menu. The user registered in this way has Space admin rights in his/her Space and Space users rights for the Inventory Spaces (MATERIALS, METHODS by default). Modification to default rights can be granted by an Instance admin using the standard openBIS UI.

Please note that users cannot be removed from openBIS. Users can only be deactivated, using the standard openBIS UI.
