To create a user, right click on the “Users” element in the tree in “Domain Configuration

This will open the add user dialog:

Where you add a username and password:

If you want to add a user that uses Active Directory for password verification, look into the section “User integration with Active Directory

Once the user is created, it will exist in the tree, but have no privileges:

A user can have roles and grants. Grants is privileges on a “Security group”, while roles are a set of grants or other roles.

A “Security group” is a set of database instances.

Three roles are predefined:
Domain admin, a special role, that gives privileges to edit the domain configuration. This is to change anything related to the setup and security of the dbWatch Control Center installation. This role cant be altered, removes, modified or have extra privileges added to it.

Super User, a special role, that gives all privileges on all the registered database instances. This role cant be altered, removes, modified or have extra privileges added to it.

DBA, by default, this gives all privileges on all the registered database instances. But different from the “Super User” role, this can be changed, and the list of instances can be changed.

You can also create your own roles.

The normal setup is to give users either the “DBA” or “Super User” roles, and have the users that also configure security and setup of Control Center have the “Domain Admin” role.
