Introduction

This article describes user management in COREmanager-based systems. This article doesn't contain all the information, but provides you with a number of links to articles where you can learn more about user management in COREmanager.

COREmanager itself doesn't work with users. It only allows you to enter a web-interface with your server administrator's username and password. However, in most panels it is not sufficient. Control panels based on COREmanager should deliver features to manage user accounts and allow them access their control panel.

Authentication

This is the first operation you need to perform to allow your users to work in the control panel. More information about user authentication can be found in the article My first user.

Renaming a user

When a user works in the system, COREmanager will remember its settings, filters, and table parameters. You can restrict user permissions (see Access permissions). All the settings and access permissions are associated with his username. When changing the username, inform COREmanager about the changes to apply them to a new username. When renaming the user, call the ON_USER_RENAME function.

Deleting a user

When deleting a user, call the ON_USER_DELETE function. This will also help you not to apply settings of deleted users to newly created ones (when a new user is created with the name of the user already existed in the panel).

Access permissions

COREmanager delivers a number of tools to restrict access of a certain user or user group to specific functions or form fields and lists. Learn more in the article Access permissions.
