I created a new user in the UMP Control Panel. How do I set or reset the password for this new user? Or is there a default password? I hope UMP does not expect to email the password to the new user since we do not have email setup
You should set up all users for ump in nimsoft either using nimsoft users or account users. As adding a user to ump I don't believe is well documented or supported. You may have to look at the liferay docs, but nimsoft has there own login mechanism for nimsoft/ump.
Once you create a nimsoft user you can login with that account however it will not show up in UMP control panel until you login with that account as it gets created in ump once you do the initial login.
Thanks. I had tried creating the user in IM but I missed the step that you must first login to IM with the username in order for UMP to pick it up. It all works now. Seems a bit disjointed that we create the users in IM and forget about the users from the UMP control panel ....
It might help to think of the control panel as part of Liferay only rather than UMP. I know--six of one, half a dozen of the other. But some parts of Liferay tie back into Nimsoft, including user creation, which means they cannot be done in the control panel. However, the control panel is still useful for changing things that are not controlled by Nimsoft. Figuring out which things those are might be a big tricky, but at least you've got this forum to help!
And note that even though users need to be added in Infrastructure Manager, you can add accounts and contacts in UMP.
