The User Management feature in Metasys UI Online facilitates the creation and management of users and their roles, category-based permissions, and privileges directly in Metasys UI Online, without the need to install software on client machines. Administrators can create and manage user details for Active Directory and Metasys local users. This feature is also available in the Metasys Site Management Portal (SMP).

Only administrators can access the User Management feature. All users can view and edit certain information that relates to their specific user details in My Profile. The My Profile feature shows the user details, system privileges, and category access. The details shown in My Profile are based on your Metasys user account settings. When you edit your profile information in My Profile, your profile details automatically update in User Management.

Administrators can complete the following tasks with the User Management feature:

  • Add, edit, and delete Metasys administrators.

  • Add, edit, and delete Active Directory Metasys users.

  • Create, edit, delete, and assign roles to Metasys users.

  • Assign authorization category permissions and system privileges to users and roles.

  • Navigate to Space Authorization to authorize spaces for users.

  • Apply system configurations and account policies to any user.

  • Filter users based on role, type, last login, and status.

  • Filter roles based on system privileges, access categories, and permissions.

For Active Directory Metasys users, the control over password management and account settings remains with the respective parent portal. Also, a user will have access to the Building Network tree in the Metasys UI only if the user has the User Can View the Item Navigation Tree (Default Tree) property selected in the User Details tab in the User Management feature in Metasys UI, or in their User Properties in SMP.
