Vision - User Management

Component Palette Icon:


The User Management component provides a built-in way to edit User Source users and roles from a Vision Client. To make changes to the Gateway's system user source from the Designer or Client, the Allow User Admin setting must be enabled. This allows for the administration of the Gateway's system user source from the Designer and Vision Client. Unless this is enabled, the Vision Module's User Management component is prevented from modifying the Gateway system's selected user source and you will see an error at the bottom of the component if it is attempted.

Changed in 8.1.25
If a User Source has its Schedule Restricted option enabled, modifications made using the Vision User Management component used to be ignored. Schedule modifications are now applied on top of the user's defined schedule to determine their effective schedule when evaluating for Schedule Restricted login.

This component can be run in one of three modes:

  • Manage Users Mode: In this mode, the component manages all of the users contained in the user source. Users and roles may be added, removed, and edited.
  • Edit Single Mode: In this mode, the component only edits a single user. Which user is being edited is controlled via the "User Source" and "Username" properties.
  • Edit Current Mode: In this mode, the user who is currently logged into the project can edit themselves. Obviously, the ability to assign roles is not available in this mode. This can be useful to allow users to alter their own password, adjust their contact information, and update their schedules.

Be careful to only expose this component to users who should have the privileges to alter other users. Access to this component in Manage Users mode will allow users to edit other users' passwords and roles.

Changed in 8.1.18
The User Management component cannot be used in Edit Current mode when the Vision Client is using an Identity Provider to log in. Attempting to use the User Management component in this situation will result in the Vision client throwing an error and a warning:
