Creating User Accounts

You control access to Enterprise PDM by creating users. Each vault has a set of users, who can be unique to that vault or also exist as users in other vaults.

To add user accounts, you must have permission to manage users.

The method you use to add user accounts depends on the archive server login type. The login type is defined when the archive server is installed. You can modify it using the archive server configuration tool.

Login types are:

  • Enterprise PDM
  • Windows
  • LDAP
