OnCommand Insight

Adding a Reporting user


You must add a new user account for each person who requires access to the Reporting portal. Having a different user account for each person provides a way of controlling access rights, individual preferences, and accountability.

Before you begin

Before adding a Reporting user, you must have allocated a unique user name, determined what password to use, and verified the correct user role or roles. These roles are specialized in the Reporting portal.


  1. Log in as an administrator to the Data Warehouse Portal at https://hostname/dwh, where hostname is the name of the system where OnCommand Insight Data Warehouse is installed.

  2. From the navigation pane on the left, click User Management.

  3. In the User Management window, click Add New User.

  4. Enter the following information for the new Reporting user:

    • User name

      User name (alphanumeric, including a-z, A-Z, and 0-9) for the account

    • E-mail Address

      Email address associated with the user account and required if the user subscribes to any reports

    • Password

      Password to log in toOnCommand Insight with this user account, which is typically selected by the user and confirmed in the interface

    • Insight role

      Roles available to the user with appropriate permissions


      The options for the OnCommand Insight role are shown only if OnCommand Insight is installed on the same machine as the reporting facilities, which is not typical.

    • Reporting roles

      Reporting role for this user account (for example, Pro Author)


      The Administrator role is unique. You can add this role to any user.

  5. Click Add.
