End User Management¶
Users are created, deleted, and edited exclusively in the IFS Cloud Web User Management pages and not in the Maintenix application. This behavior is controlled by the following configuration parameters which are enabled during installation:
- IFS_CODEPLOYED_SCHEMA_ENABLED (set in the Maintenix database)
- MaintenixConnected (set in IFS Cloud Web / Manage Mx Config / Apps-Mtx Config)
The information in a Maintenix user record is contained in the following two, separate IFS Cloud Web records:
- User record - see Solution Manager / Users and Permissions / Users/User.
- Person record - when you create a user, you can create a Person at the same time. See Application Base Setup / Enterprise / Person page.
When Users and Persons are created or modified in IFS Cloud Web, the information is updated in Maintenix as follows:
|IFS Cloud Web user record field updated||IFS Cloud Web person record field updated||Resulting field updated in Maintenix|
|User Email||Email Address|
|Active = Yes
Active = No
|Locked checkbox not selected
Locked checkbox is selected
|Full Name||First Name
Name column value = Alert
Communication Method column value = E-Mail
|Alert Email Address|
|Person Id (when created)||HR Code|
To log into IFS Cloud, end users must have a User Identity with a User Type of End User.
Note: Users such as pilots who don't log into the system, but who are referenced in the system by other logged in users, do not have a User record, but they do have a Person record.
