The ADMIN.USER command allows management of the register of user names for network connections.








The ADMIN.USER command is built around a form filling interface. Initially it displays a request for a new or existing user name. The F2 key will display a pick list of registered users. Entering a blank user name exits from the command.


Selection of an existing user displays their details for possible amendment. Entry of a new user name displays an empty form into which the user's details may be entered.


An entry named DEFAULT (case sensitive) may be created. This will be used by the security system to determine the rights of any user for whom there is no separate entry in the register.


See Application Level Security for further details.



The fields in this screen are:

Last loginDisplays the date and time of last login in the local time zone of the user executing the command.
Owner detailsUnused by QM internally and may be used for any purpose.
Min password(Windows USB and user mode installations on Linux/Unit only)  Minimum acceptable password length. Leave blank to impose no restrictions.
Force accountIf set, the user is forced into this account on login except for QMClient processes. If left blank, they will be asked for an account name after entry of their user name and password.
Apply to phantomsDetermines whether the force account option applies to phantom processes.
AdministratorIs this user to have administrator rights?
QM user groupAllows a user name to be associated with a group name (e.g. SALES) for use elsewhere in the QM security system. The group associated with a QM process can be determined from the @QM.GROUP variable
AllowAllows user to:
Create/delete accountsUse CREATE.ACCOUNT, DELETE.ACCOUNT and create accounts by entering QM in a directory that is not already an account.
Define private serversUse SET.PRIVATE.SERVER to create QMNet server definitions that are private to the session in which the command is issued.
Command prompt accessIf this option is not set, the user cannot access the interactive command prompt. System administrators always have access.

In a system running with security turned off (see the SECURITY command), any user not appearing in the user register will be able to perform any of the actions controlled by the above options.

Valid accountsA comma separated list of accounts that the user is allowed to access. If the "All except those listed below" option is selected, this list is accounts that the user may not access. In either case, if the list is empty, no restrictions are imposed.
ActionEnter A to amend, F to file changes, D to delete this user or X to exit without saving any changes.
