What is a User?

Get started now: How to Add or Manage User user guide

To authenticate the User, Nodinite currently use Windows built-in Windows authentication. The authentication mechanism applies to end-users accessing the Nodinite Web Client and the Web API.

The built-in Auditing ensures that all sensitive User operations are to the Nodinite Audit Log.

A user within Nodinite is matched by IIS to an existing Windows Domain account or local Windows user when operating in Workgroup mode. All non-Windows users must provide valid Windows domain credentials to pass the login procedure. If an end-user is not explicitly defined or part of a Windows AD Groups he/she is not allowed entrance to use Nodinite.

Further, a User is associated with one or more Roles either implicitly using Windows AD Groups or explicit (by pinpointing individual Users for each Role).

You can manage Nodinite Users from the Administration section of the Web Client menu:

Quick facts

Here are som quick facts:

  • End-users must be explicitly named in the Users collection or be a member of a named Windows AD Group
  • The Users belong to the same Windows Domains/Forest where Nodinite is installed
  • You must be a member of the Administrators role to manage Roles (and all other administrative parts/objects).
  • Users must be part of at least one Role in a Log View and/or a Monitor View to be able to work with Nodinite.

Users can be part of the Administrators Role.

The principle of least privilege should be honoured.
