Creating a user

Follow the steps below to manually create a user in FotoWeb. If you would rather import users and groups from your existing Active Directory or another identity provider, contact your FotoWare Partner.

Adding a user

Go to the User Management console: Open the Tools menu (cogwheel icon) and choose Manage Users/Groups. In the view that opens, select Add new user.

User and Group Management option in Tools menu

Enter the user information on the General page. The Username, First name, Last name, and Email address fields are mandatory.


Enter the password that the user needs to log in. Note that when modifying the account of users who have been imported from an external authentication provider, the password cannot be changed as it is managed in the external directory.

Choice of license

The license controls the features that users have access to in the system.

Learn more about how licenses and user groups combine.

Adding the user to a group

When creating a user, the user can be immediately assigned to one or more groups by selecting a group from the drop-down list. New groups can also be created by typing in a new group name and selecting Add new group in the drop-down list. You can then set all the necessary group permissions before returning and saving the new user.

Saving the user

Select OK to create the user and store it in the FotoWeb user database.
