Description of User Configuration Settings
User Setting Description
Access Determines whether or not the user account has access to log into the system.
User Name Set the case-sensitive user name (64 byte maximum supports up to 64 ASCII characters; Less for multi-byte languages). Note: This field can only be set when creating the user. To change the user name after the account has been created, the user would need to be deleted and recreated with the proper value.
New Password Set the case-sensitive password (64 byte maximum supports up to 64 ASCII characters; Less for multi-byte languages).
Confirm Password To confirm the new password, enter it again.
User Type User account type used to determine various access permissions to the system.
User Description Field used for additional notes to describe this particular user.
Session Timeout Amount of time (in minutes) the user has before they are logged out due to inactivity.
Serial Remote Authentication Override Determines whether or not this account can login serially even when the NMC authentication is set to RADIUS.

User Preferences
Setting Description
Event Log Color Coding Configure whether text in the event log is color-coded based on event severity.
Export Log Format Configure which format the event log should be displayed in when exported (downloaded). Tab (default) allows fields to be tab-delimited whereas CSV is comma-separated.
Temperature Scale Configure which temperature units, Celsius (default) or Fahrenheit, will be displayed throughout this user interface.
Date Format Select the user interface date format from the drop-down box.
Bad Login Attempts Number of incorrect login attempts a user has before the system disables their account. Upon reaching this limit, a message is displayed informing the user the account has been locked. The Super User or an Administrator-level account is needed to re-enable the account to allow the user to log back in. Note: A Super User account cannot be locked out, but can be manually disabled if necessary.
Language Select the user interface display languages from the drop-down box.
Strong Passwords Configure whether new passwords created for user accounts will require additional rules such as at least one lowercase character, one uppercase character, one number, and one symbol.
Password Policy Select the duration (in days) to which the user will be required to change their password. A value of 0 days disables this feature (by default).
