Quick guide to user management in 3.1
One of the news in GpsGate Server v3.1 is the integration of manage users, tags, views, event rules and device mappers into Map View. Everything is done in Map View. This will speed up any managing task greatly and give you a better overview.
How to add a user
To add a new user there is a button in the upper right corner of the vehicle list which says "Add new User". The logged in user must have the privilege _EditUser to see this menu option.
How to edit a user
Right click on a user in the vehicle list and select "Edit User". The logged in user must have the privilege _EditUser to see this menu option.
How to delete a user
Right click on a user in the vehicle list and select "Delete User". The logged in user must have the privilege _EditUser to see this menu option.
How to find a user
You can search for a user in the vehicle list search box. You can use any of the fields e.g. phone number, IMEI or username to find the user. It can also be a good idea to create Views for different types of users.
What is "User Types"
User Types is a new feature in GpsGate Server 3.1. It is a "template" from which you can create new users. In this way adding and editing users will be much faster, and you will only be asked to input information actually needed to setup the user.
How to create a User Type
Select "User Type Editor" from the vehicle list settings menu. The logged in user must have the privilege _EditUserTemplates to see this menu option.
Create a new user type by selecting "Empty (Advanced)" in the drop down. Or select an existing user type to edit it. Use the check box to the right to determine which fields should be displayed and which fields should be mandatory. You can also set default values for all fields.
Add standard "User Types" to your old applications
