About this task

You can edit only local users. Federated user details are automatically synchronized with the external identity source, for example, the LDAP server.


  1. Select Configuration > Admin Users.
  2. Select the user you want to edit.
    If your system includes more than 20 items, you can specify how many rows are shown on each page at one time. You can then use your browser's find feature to search for a specific item in the currently displayed rows.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. Optionally, make changes to the name or group membership.
  5. Optionally, to prevent the user from accessing the system temporarily, check Deny Access.
  6. Click Save.
    The new settings are applied the next time the user signs out and then signs back in to the StorageGRID Webscale system.
