The User view

In this view it is possible to:

  • Update the user First and Last name
  • Edit their email address (this will also change their username to access the dashboard)
  • Set their active state – this allows users to remain in the system, but have access revoked
  • View and reset their API key, these keys can be used with the advanced management API
  • Set the end users permissions

Reseting a user password

To reset a user password, click the “Reset password” button and enter a new password. Passwords are encrypted in the DB.

Deleting a user
