Administrators can add, edit, delete, and manage group memberships for users in the Users Management page.

Accessing the Users Management Page

The users management page is accessible by clicking on the Admin link in the top header, then opening the users tab. This page allows users having the “Manage users and groups” privilege to add, edit, delete and manage the groups memberships for the users. Note that users permissions are managed through managing their group memberships, with each group having different permissions defined in the Group Management Page.
