Create Local User
Creating a Local User in Silverback requires that the user have all the necessary attributes that are collected from a device at the time of enrollment, such as the users First & Last Name, through to the Username that should be presented for a VPN or Wireless Access Point.
If Silverback is configured for both Local Users and an LDAP Source, the Local User will take precedence over the LDAP Users. This means that if you have an LDAP user ‘email@example.com’ and you create a Local User also called ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ Silverback will use the Local Users details and not the LDAP Users details. Any devices enrolled with the LDAP user credentials will be transferred to the local user. If you delete the local user, any devices with that username will be deleted from the console.
- Login to Silverback admin console as an Administrator
- Choose ‘Users’ tab
- Click New Device User.
- Fill the Basic form:
- First Name
- Last Name
- Email Address
- Repeat Password
The basic settings cover the user’s main settings.
- When entering the Username, the advanced user fields below will get pre-filled out automatically.
- You can individually change the advanced user fields if required.
- The advanced user fields can be used later on as lookup fields to automatically deploy user specific information into an MDM profile, e.g. when creating an email profile.
- When completed click on Save.
