Account administrators can manage user accounts in SystemWeaver using the swAdmin2 application. This article describes how to modify an existing user account. 


Note: The swAdmin2 client is the only means by which user account maintenance can be done.


Prerequisites


Searching for and Viewing User Accounts

Editing an Existing User Account

To select an existing user account, double-click anywhere on its row:


The Edit user form will display and you can modify the account information. 



The only restriction is that the Username must be unique. Usernames are case-sensitive. It is possible to change the case (lower/upper) of the letters after saving as long as the name is still unique in the database.


The Generate button can be used to obtain a random password, or you can enter one manually. See Creating User Accounts for more information. 


Click Save to save your changes.
