User Registration

 

Register users in ELN Interface

 

Users can only be registered by someone with Instance admin role:

  1. Go to the User Manager, under Utilities.
  2. Click the  +New User button. 
  3. Provide a username: LDAP username for LDAP authentication, email for SSO authentication.
  4. For file-based authentication provide username and password. The password can later be changed by the user.

 

Default roles assigned in ELN


When a user is registered via the ELN interface, a Space (folder) with the name of the user is automatically created under the Lab Notebook main menu. The user is also assigned some default roles:

 

  1. Space admin of the Space created for him/her under the notebook.
  2. Space user of the Inventory Spaces (MATERIALS, METHODS by default), the STOCK_CATALOG and the STORAGE Spaces.
  3. Space Observer of the STOCK_ORDERS, ELN_SETTINGS and PUBLICATIONS Spaces

 

Modification to default rights can be granted by an Instance admin from the admin UI, as explained below.

Overview of roles: https://openbis.ch/index.php/docs/admin-documentation/user-registration/openbis-roles/ .
