The User Administration is only available in the Super Administrator role.  

To edit the language and interface settings of a user, refer to: Access and Edit the Language and Display Settings

You can also use the API Method:create user to create new users instead.

Configure a Custom User URI

As of PoolParty 5.5 each user's data has become 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 URL is defined via the file. The User Identifier is prefilled with the defined user name.

Details on the adavantges find here: Users as Resources - User URI

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 URL and User Identifier field, as shown below:

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