In Toad Intelligence Central, new user accounts are created using one or both of the following methods:
Use the following icons to identify the source of a user account.
Active Directory® user (imported from Active Directory). This type of account uses Windows® credentials.
Intelligence Central user (created on Toad Intelligence Central). This type of user account exists only on Toad Intelligence Central and uses Intelligence Central credentials.
You can view a list of users, as well as user details (including objects associated with a user), on the Users page of the Web interface.
To view user information
TIP: You can see only the objects shared with you. When viewing a user other than yourself, this user may have objects shared with them that you cannot see.
Each user is granted a role. By default, a new user is granted the Standard role. A user with the Administrator role can change the default role for new users and can change the role of any existing user. See the Toad Intelligence Central Deployment Guide for more information.
Review the following role descriptions.
If your account is an Intelligence Central user account, you can edit some account details (profile) or change your password.
If your account was created by importing it from Active Directory, you cannot change the password through Toad Intelligence Central. However, Intelligence Central can be configured to synchronize with Active Directory. See the Toad Intelligence Central Deployment Guide for more information about synchronization.
To edit your Intelligence Central user details
Intelligence Central can send activity reports and error alerts to users for objects they own or manage. Individual users can subscribe/unsubscribe to these email notifications through their user account details.
To modify your email subscriptions
In Toad Intelligence Central, new groups are created using one or both of the following methods:
Use the following icons to identify the source of a group.
|Active Directory group (imported from Active Directory).|
|Intelligence Central group (created on Toad Intelligence Central). Groups with this icon exist only on Toad Intelligence Central.|
Note that on Toad Intelligence Central, groups are a flat structure containing any number of users. A group on Toad Intelligence Central cannot contain sub-groups or nested groups.
You can view a list of groups, as well as group details, on the Groups page of the Web interface.
To view group information
You can modify the list of members of an Intelligence Central group you own. You can remove an Intelligence Central group you own.
You cannot use Intelligence Central to modify a group imported from Active Directory. However, Intelligence Central can be configured to synchronize with Active Directory. See the Toad Intelligence Central Deployment Guide for more information about synchronization.
Administrator login is required to remove Active Directory groups.
To edit an Intelligence Central group
Click Remove Group to remove the group from Intelligence Central.
Share and Manage rights assigned to the group are removed with the group. The ability of individual members of the group to see/manage objects might be affected and is dependent on other rights assigned to them. A user is given the highest level of rights assigned to them, either as an individual or as a member of a group.
Users with certain privileges can add new users and groups to Toad Intelligence Central by importing users/groups from Active Directory®. Which type of user (role) is allowed to add new users is dependent on how Intelligence Central is configured.
To add Active Directory User or Group using the Web interface
Users and groups imported from Active Directory are given the same name in Intelligence Central.
Review the following known issues and limitations.
If an Active Directory name already exists on Toad Intelligence Central then that Active Directory name is not imported. You will be notified of any users and groups who cannot be imported.
Long Active Directory usernames
For Active Directory usernames longer than 16 characters, the Intelligence Central username will be a truncated form of the Active Directory name.
If the Active Directory username has a numeric suffix then up to three digits of that numeric suffix is preserved. For example, Active Directory username very_long_username12 transforms to Intelligence Central username very_long_user12.
Active Directory names containing characters not allowed by Toad Intelligence Central
Active Directory names containing the following characters cannot be imported to Intelligence Central. You will be notified of any users and groups who cannot be imported.
Active Directory supports sub groups (groups within groups). Intelligence Central does not.
When importing an Active Directory group with sub groups the sub groups and users in sub groups are not imported to Intelligence Central.
Use the Authenticate to Active Directory dialog to enter your Active Directory credentials in order to access a list of domains and users when attempting to add Active Directory users (or groups) to Intelligence Central.
To authenticate to Active Directory
In the Authenticate dialog, enter the following information:
|Domain||A domain in the Active Directory forest.|
|Username||Your username to that domain.|
|Password||Your password to that domain.|
Remember these credentials on server for future Active Directory access and synchronization—Select this option to instruct Intelligence Central to do the following:
Automatically and regularly synchronize imported Active Directory users and groups.
If you do not select this option, the list of imported users and groups might not be kept in sync with Active Directory.
