User management🔗

An AQtive Guard user can be assigned one of the following permission levels:

  • Administrator - has full access and capabilities in AQtive Guard.
  • Analyst - has the capability to make changes within an organization, but are unable to make any changes that affect other users.
  • Tester - has read-only access to the project(s) assigned to them in AQtive Guard.

This guide provides instructions for user management at each permission level.

    • Preferred name - Optional display name for the user.
    • Permission level - Required. This is the level you want to assign to this user.
    • Password - Required. This is the user password. It must be a minimum of 8 characters and have no leading or trailing spaces.
