How do I manage users?

In the Users tab, you can create new user accounts, assign them appropriate roles and assign them to the previously created databases or containers of the OCS services. This part of the panel also allows you to add any number of accounts, change the levels of their permissions, or delete them.
Established accounts can be used as the authorization needed to ensure that your application can make use of databases and OCS containers.
Please note that at this point you manage your applications' access to services rather than the specific rights of people - the management of user accounts is available on the subpage of the Oktawave panel called Manage your account.
To manage access to services, select the Users tab in the Services sub-page.
You will see the list databases and OCS containers you have created. To add a new user account to either of them, click the Add button to the right of the list.
(The following describes the process of creating an account for a new user of a database. The process is identical in case of OCS containers).
You will see the fields to be completed with the user's data - the name and a password (which must be repeated).
The last thing you need to determine is the role of the user. It specifies whether the application can only read data stored in a database or OCS container, or whether it can also save data. In practice, this allows you to provide secure access to your database for applications for example of your business partners.
Clicking the Add button will begin the process of adding a new user account. Its creation should take no more than a few minutes.
To manage existing user accounts, click the blue plus sign to the left of the name of the database.
You will then see the list of the database user accounts. At this point you can change the parameters set when creating the account. Any change must be confirmed and then you need to wait a while before it is implemented.
Status of user account creation process, and introduced changes is displayed at the top of the page. His completion is also confirmed by the alert appearing on the Dashboard page.
