Adding Users to WNE

When first installed WNE has a single Administrator user intended for the local customer IT staff to use.

It can be helpful to create new user logins for newsroom staff in order to restrict access to the administrative tools as well as limit who can control the play-out or file distribution.

  1. Login locally as Administrator
  2. Click on the page top link Administration
  3. Click on the tab User Management

The default view for a new installation is shown below.

From the user management tab you add new users using the [+ Add New] button which allows you to specify the username and edit the password and privileges.

You can delete any user you create using the [x] action button.  The administrator user can be edited (using the pencil icon) but cannot be deleted.
