AlienVault® USM Central™

Creating Users

Users created in USM Central are automatically created in the connected deployments as well. These new users share the same role access in both environments. Manager accounts can manually change the access of other user accounts in the individual environments.

If an account is created in a connected deployment first, and then added to USM Central, the account from the connected deployment will take precedence over the account in USM Central. This can cause issues with things like MFA logins for the USM Central account. It is recommended that you delete the account on the connected deployment before adding the account to USM Central.

To create a user

  1. Go to Settings > Users.
  2. The Users List page displays the list of user accounts in USM Central.

  3. Click New User.
  4. Type the user's Email address and Full Name.
  5. This is the email address used to verify the account and set the initial password.

  6. Select the role of the user. The options are Manager, Analyst, or Read-Only.
  7. If desired, designate deployment access for an Analyst or Read-Only user role. (SeeRegulated Deployment Access for more information.)
  8. Click Save.
  9. USM Central sends an email to the email address that includes a link to set a password and login.
