Define a Custom User URI

This section contains a short guide on how to define a custom user URI.

In PoolParty each user's data is a resource with a unique URI the system automatically provides. You can change that URI according to your needs, as long as the format is compliant.

The default Base URI is defined via the file. The User Identifier is pre-filled with the defined user name.

Where to find the Custom User URI

In the Create User dialogue, Advanced tab, you find and define the user's complete URI as a combination of the Base URI and User Identifier field, as shown below:



You cannot edit the user URI once the user has been created.
