User - General Information
The General Information panel lets you identify and disable users, specify certain logon requirements, and it lets you choose the authentication mechanisms available for the user.
This panel also lets you establish security settings for users who are using SRP authentication, the default approach to authentication. For a complete description of how to set up authentication, see BMC technical documentation at Administering security.
When entering a user name, you can use special characters. However, because RSCD agents cannot accommodate special characters in user names, all special characters are automatically encoded for use by RSCD agents. (You can see examples of this encoding if you examine the users file on a managed server.) To make encoded user names readable to humans, the system uses standard URL encoding for the following special characters.
Optional descriptive text.
User is disabled
To disable a user, check User is disabled.
User participates in directory synchronization
