Creating users with the Default User template

Most of the properties that a typical user will need can be given to the "Default User" template, and then used automatically every time you create a new user.

About this task

User role: Product administrator

Note: By default, the "Default User" user type is QuickScan User. For example, you might want most users to only be able to review reports and not perform any job or report pack configuration. You can give the "Default User" a Report Consumer role and choose which folders they are allowed to access. When new users log in for the first time, they will automatically assume the access permissions of the Default User template. The "Default User" is displayed in the list of users on the Administration tab > Users and Groups page. If a user type is listed as "Restricted", you cannot change it because that user type has additional administrative permissions that you don't have. You can only change user types that have your access permission level or lower. For example, if you have a Standard User type, you cannot change the Administrator user type.

New users will inherit the license type of the Default User (floating or authorized user), which is set the first time the product instance is configured.


  1. Go to the Administration view.
  2. On the Users and Groups page, select the Default User from the list.
  3. On the Edit User page, make your changes, and click Save.


New users appear in the list of users under their Windows™ networking User name and Full name. The only exception is if the Default User has been assigned a No Access user type. In this instance, the new user is denied access, and no new account is created.
