The Manage Accounts area allows administrators to manage FireDaemon Fusion user accounts. If you are an administrator, you can create and manage users in this area. Note that all users, including administrators, must use the My Account area to edit their own settings.



To add a user, click Add from the toolbar menu and enter the information for the new user.



The available fields are listed below.

FireDaemon Fusion administrators can also assign a role to the new user: Administrator or User.


Administrators have full access to FireDaemon Fusion and the machines on the network also running Fusion.


Users have more fine-tuned access as assigned to them by an administrator. There are six types of functionality an administrator can offer a user when adding or editing a user account. By default, all administrators have access to all six functions.


Function

Description

View quick stats

Allows users to view the Quick Stats tab.

Manage FireDaemon services

Allows users to view, add, edit, start, stop, and remove FireDaemon Pro services within the FireDaemon services tab.

Manage System services

Allows users to view, add, edit, start, stop, and remove Windows System services within in the System services tab.

Can shut down computer

Allows users to shut down a computer running Fusion in the same network.

Can restart computer

Allows users to restart a computer running Fusion in the same network.

Can browse folders

Allows users to browse folders on the computer that Fusion is installed on.


An administrator must assign at least one function to a new user; beyond that, administrators may assign as many or as few of these functions to a user as they wish, provided that the user also has access to manage FireDaemon or system services. The tabs a user sees when logged in depends on which functions an administrator has assigned to them. For instance, a user with only the View quick stats and Manage FireDaemon services functions can view only the Quick Stats and FireDaemon Services tabs. They will not be able to manage system services, shut down or restart a computer, or browse folders.


To edit a user, click the user whose information you would like to edit, and then update the fields with the new information. Existing administrators can update their own information here. Note that non-administrators must use the My Account area to modify their own user information.


To delete a user, select the user from the user list and click Delete. You may delete multiple users at once in this way by selecting all the users you wish to delete.
