Here are simple ways of having users created with specific permissions and authorizations:

I - Users in the same client.


Method A : duplicate an existing user

Method B : user group
- create a user Group

- Set authorizations : for instance only access to folders that have a name that begins with "OPER", and run jobs on Agent "WIN01" with login "WINLOGIN".

- Set privileges.

- Then edit the user object and add it to the group from the UserGroups tab.

II - Add new users to different clients


A/ Via xml exports
1 - From the explorer window, right click on the user > External & Printing > Export.

2 - Connect to the target client, and from the explorer right click > Import.

3- The password of the imported user(s) will be automatically set to its default value "pass". You will be prompted to change it at the user's first connection.

B/ via the transport container

1 - From the explorer, drag and drop the user object in the transport container folder.

2 - Use DB Unload to unload the transport case.

3 - To be on the safe side, make sure to specify which client should be unloaded.
Press 'No'.

Then select the client.

4 - A transport file has been produced under the name "uc_data.txt" in../db folder of where the utility runs.

7 - Once loading has completed, you can directly sign in with the imported user(s). Password will be set to default value "pass", which you will need to change at first logon.

I know it's not possible to create users with Automic script. I'm curious if any of you has ever used the API to add users?
