We should set up a username for each person who will be using Zenoss Core, and all the users should log in using their user account, not as the default admin user. Individual users can be granted the same privileges as the admin account. However, working as a non-admin with an individual user account has several benefits:
Changes to settings are tracked via username
Custom alerting rules can be defined per user
Access permissions can be restricted per user
The initial setup created a user account and we've already configured that account with alerting rules in the previous chapter. Let's walk through the process of adding a user so we can review all the settings that are attached to a user.
Let's add a new user:
Select Advanced from the main menu.
Select Users from the side bar.
From the Users menu, select Add New User.
Enter the User Name and Email address in the Add User dialog box.
Click on Submit to create the user account.
The new username is added to the list of users...
