Creating a user

Follow the below steps to manually create a user in FotoWeb. If you would rather import users and groups from you existing active directory, please refer to the Authentication Providers guide.

Adding a user

Go to the User Management console: Open the Tools menu (cogwheel icon) and choose Manage Users/Groups. The user management opens - now click on Add new user to create one.

Fill in the user information on the General page. The fields Username, First name, Last name and Email address are the required ones.


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.

Adding the user to a group

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

Saving the user

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