How to create a user
User accounts allow people to view dashboards and create user widgets.
Note: If you are using OMS, see How to add new users. The user name and password must be created there.
Any user created in Apex is local to Apex. It is not connected in any way to a domain user account or local system account. If you want or require that sort of integration you must use OMS.
Any local user wanting to log in to view or create dashboards must use the user name and password set here.
To create a user:
1. In the web interface, click System > Users.
2. Click the new icon .
3. Complete the fields using the information in User settings if necessary.
4. Click the accept icon .
 
The new user is created and is available to log in and begin using Apex.
