Create local users


OnCommand Workflow Automation (WFA) enables you to create and manage local WFA users with specific permissions for various roles, such as guest, operator, approver, architect, admin, and backup.

What you'll need

You must have installed WFA and logged in as an admin.

About this task

WFA enables you to create users for the following roles:

  • Guest

    This user can view the portal and the status of a workflow execution, and can be notified of a change in the status of a workflow execution.

  • Operator

    This user is allowed to preview and execute workflows for which the user is given access.

  • Approver

    This user is allowed to preview, execute, approve, and reject workflows for which the user is given access.

    Note It is recommended to provide the email ID of the approver. If there are multiple approvers, you can provide a group email ID in the E-mail field.
  • Architect

    This user has full access to create workflows, but is restricted from modifying global WFA server settings.

  • Admin

    This user has complete access to the WFA server.

  • Backup

    This is the only user who can remotely generate backups of the WFA server. However, the user is restricted from all other access.
