The User Administration - Overview

The section provides a short overview of the basic user administration functions in PoolParty.

The User Administration lets you create new users and edit or delete existing ones. The user rights and permissions management also is done here.

You can assign User Roles to individual users. User roles in PoolParty determine the access rights  and editing permissions users have.

Afterwards, you can assign User Groups to users, which determines their access rights to projects, ontologies and custom schemes that have been assigned the same user groups.

Permissions are granted server-wide. Additionally you can change the User Roles for a user per project, so their server-wide permissions will be overruled in that project.

The User Administration is only available in the PoolPartySuperAdmin role.

How to Open the User Administration in PoolParty

  1. Open the User Administration using the icon in the toolbar.
  2. The node of the current user is active per default, the Details View on the right displays the details of the current user.

You can also create and manage PoolParty users directly by using the API calls of the  User Management Services.

PoolParty uses Spring Security for authentication and authorization. That way it can be integrated with other authentication mechanisms for example LDAP, AD, and the like.
