Creating user accounts

User accounts are used to manage authorization and access to Lenovo XClarity Administrator and to devices that are under managed authentication.

About this task

The first user account that you create must have the role of Supervisor and must be activated (enabled).

As an added measure of security, create at least two user accounts that have the role of Supervisor. Ensure that you record the passwords for these user accounts, and store them in a secure location in case you must restore the Lenovo XClarity Administrator.


To create user accounts, complete the following steps.

  1. Fill in the following information in the Create New Supervisor User dialog.
    • Enter a user name and description for the user.
    • Enter the new and confirm new passwords. The rules for the passwords are based the current account-security settings.
    • Select one or more role groups to authorize the user to perform appropriate tasks.

      For information about role groups and how to create custom role groups, see Creating a custom role group.

    • (Optional) Set Change password on first access to Yes if you want to force the user to change the password the first time the user logs in to XClarity Administrator.
  2. Click Create.
  3. Click the Create icon (Create icon) and repeat the previous steps to create additional users.
  4. Click Return to Initial Setup.
