To modify an individual user

The User Functions dialog box enables you, as the administrator, to manage an individual user in your organization. To manage multiple users with User Functions, use the Multi User Selection dialog box.

  1. Find a user by using one of the following methods in Find users.
  2. Click the user name to display the User Functions dialog box.
  3. Select any of the following options:
    Option Description
    Edit User Modify user contact information and email addresses, change the user password, add or remove security roles, and modify account settings.
    Copy User Make a copy of an existing user within a customer hierarchy. The copied user resides in the original customer hierarchy and possesses the original user's provisioned services. See Move and copy users.
    Delete Permanently delete a deprovisioned user account from the Services Manager and Active Directory. This function is only available after you deprovision a user.
    Deprovision Deactivate the user account in Active Directory but keep the account information in the Services Manager database.

    • To reinstate the user, click Enable and then Provision.
