How to create a user


To create a user from the back office interface navigate to the dashboard and click on the add user icon or use the menu User Management.


The "Create User" dialogue is displayed with several sections.

User type

Start by selecting the user type.

This is an administrative user who can access the back office tool or it could be an API-user.
