Introduction

Users play a vital role in the security management of applications with Visual Guard. This documentation provides information on creating, managing, and utilizing users in Visual Guard.

Creating Users

To create a user in Visual Guard, follow these steps:

  1. Access the Visual Guard Administration Console (WinConsole or WebConsole).
  2. Navigate to the “Users” section.
  3. Click on the “Create User” button.
  4. Provide the required information for the user, such as name, email address, and password.
  5. Assign appropriate roles to the user based on their responsibilities and access rights.
  6. Save the user configuration.

Managing Users

Visual Guard facilitates the management of users registered in the VGRepository. Here are some common operations you can perform on users:

  • Modifying User Information: You can update user information, such as name, email address, or password, by accessing the user profile in the Visual Guard Administration Console.
  • Disabling a User: If a user no longer needs access to the Visual Guard-secured application, you can disable them to revoke their access rights. This can be done by modifying the user’s status in the Visual Guard Administration Console.
  • Locking a User: In certain situations, you may want to lock a user for security reasons. Locking a user prevents their access to the secured application until the lock is lifted.
  • Deleting a User: If a user no longer needs to be registered in the VGRepository, you can remove them from the database. This can be done by accessing the user profile in the Visual Guard Administration Console and selecting the delete option.

Assigning Roles and Groups

When registering a user in Visual Guard, you can assign them appropriate roles and groups. Roles define the user’s access rights, while groups provide a way to organize users and simplify permission assignment. By assigning the user to relevant groups and roles, you ensure that they have the necessary permissions to perform their tasks.

Audit and User Supervision

Visual Guard offers advanced audit and supervision features to track and supervise user actions. You can audit every action performed by a user, recording a detailed history of activities in the secured application. Additionally, you can monitor user actions in real-time to detect suspicious or unauthorized behavior.


Please note that this documentation provides an overview of managing users in Visual Guard. The exact steps and features may vary depending on your specific configuration and requirements.
